Abstract

The use of an ocular prosthesis often helps to minimize the psychological problems associated with eye loss. Unfortunately, the anophthalmic socket sometimes contracts in patient’s long life time. To solve this problem, an anophthalmic socket reconstruction is indicated and the reconstruction requires creating a cavity of the appropriate size and shape for retaining an ocular prosthesis. In a reconstruction surgery, to expand the contracted anophthalmic socket, an ocular conformer is commonly employed with a free skin
graft. To create an anophthalmic socket cavity appropriate for an ocular prosthesis, we used a ready-made ocular prosthesis as the ocular conformer with a free skin graft. We believe that this method is optimal for creating the required hemispherical shell shape cavity in the anophthalmic socket in order to wear an ocular prosthesis successfully.
