Abstract

The disability associated with the loss of an eye can cause significant physical, psychological and emotional disturbances. A maxillofacial Prosthodontist can boost the physical and psychological well being of such patients by restoration of functional and esthetic requirements. A 30 year old male serving soldier who sustained a blast injury to the left eye during a counter insurgency operation in the northern sector of the country was referred to Department of Prosthodontics for prosthetic rehabilitation of missing left eye. A custom made heat polymerized polymethyl methaacrylate ocular prosthesis was fabricated for the patient which restored normal opening of the eye, some degree of movements and esthetically pleasing appearance.

Keywords: Ocular defect, Custom ocular prosthesis.
