Proesthetic (Glass) Eye Re-Make

August 4, 2021

I thought you might be interested in the process of making an artificial eye. It would be different with a brand new patient, as they would have to make an impression of the socket first. With me, they are able to use my current prosthetic as a template.

First pic is my old eye covered and built up with wax to fill in the fit. The mold will be made from this after my ocularist is satisfied with the fit. Second is the back of the prosthetic. It is not round, so it does not roll around in the socket. Third and fourth is me wearing it. There is a peg on front to aid the mold making process. Fifth is the start of painting the iris. Once finished, a black disc will be applied to it for the pupil. Red threads act as veins.

My old prosthetic will be cleaned up once the mold is made so I can wear it until new one is made.

I will come back for a fitting for the new prosthetic in a few weeks.
