Abstract

Ocular defects result from tumor, congenital anomaly, external injury or the need for histologic confirmation of a suspected diagnosis not only lead to serious impairment of function and esthetics but also make the patient psychologically handicap. Prosthetic rehabilitation attempts to restore these disfigurements may improve esthetic, level of function, psychological condition of the patient and ultimately ameliorate the quality of life. This article describes clinical report of rehabilitation of a post ophthalmic enucleation patient with custom made prosthesis using stock eye shell that can create esthetically pleasing result. Although the patient cannot see with this prosthesis, it will definitely restore the patient’s self?esteem and allow him or her to confidently face the world rather than hiding behind dark glasses
