The loss of an eye from injury or other cause is unpleasant and upsetting. However it need not remain so. A prosthetic eye can look very natural, and movement is capable in some cases. Many people wear artificial eyes with great success for many years, but there are some side effects that may need surgical attention.
Side effects include sagging eyelids caused by the weight of the eye or a sunken appearance of the eye. Another condition is shrinkage or loss of shape of the eye socket. Some patients also experience migration of the socket implant, which may require replacement. New implants are available at TOC that enhance the movement of artificial eyes.
