An example of an orbital prosthesis.

Orbital prosthesis:
The silicone eye prosthesis is designed to restore lost tissue of the orbital area,including eye,eyelids and associated tissue.The eyeball is custom fabricated to match size, colour and appearance of the opposing eye as closely as possible.The prosthesis is carved to provide a realistic match and to appear as natural as possible to the constantly changing natural eye.

Eyelashes and eyebrows are added to increase the natural appearance. Spectacles are also provided with a graduated tint to allow for any slight colour imbalance that may arise due to the constantly changing natural skin tones.
