Challenging Cases with Ocular Prosthetics

In some cases it is difficult to get the results that we and the patient desire. In some classic challenging cases it is difficult to get the eye lid contours and/or eyelid opening to match the fellow eye.

Some of the scenarios include but are not limited to:

  • Socket contraction
  • Superior lid sulcus
  • Superior lid ptosis
  • Inferior lid laxity
  • Prominent globe
  • Anophthalmia
  • Post radiated socket
  • Traumatic Ocular Injury

In these cases we do our best and exhaust all of our options regarding “tricks of the trade” to achieve the most balanced prosthetic result and comfort. At this time, the patient may consult with their oculoplastic surgeon and/or seek the recommendation of other specialists.
