A Case Report on Fabrication of a Non-integrated Hollow Ocular Prosthesis Using Soap Spacer

September 10, 2021 Medicine and Medical Research 0

Cancer, trauma, or congenital flaws can all result in the loss of an eye. An ocular deficiency can be rehabilitated with a stock prosthesis or by customising a prosthesis for the patient. A custom-made prosthesis has greater benefits than a pre-fabricated prosthetic. A personalised ocular prosthesis is made by taking an impression of the socket and tissue bed, which allows for better prosthesis contouring. In comparison to a stock eye prosthesis, a personalised prosthesis provides a better fit via positive adaptation to the tissue bed, is more pleasant to use, and provides superior cosmetic effects. The patient’s comfort and adaptability are further enhanced by hollowing out the prosthesis. The primary goal of this chapter is to explain a method for creating a hollow ocular prosthesis using a soap spacer.
