Indications and characteristics for an artificial eye
The artificial eye is used for rehabilitation in the event of loss of sight, due to various eye injuries and diseases as well as congenital malformations.
When an eye prosthesis is adjusted, it is not absolutely necessary that the eyeball has been removed. An eye prosthesis protects the eye socket and prevents shrinkage.
The physical and psychological impairment associated with the loss of an eye must also be considered as an indication.
Features / Components:
Postoperatively, interim prostheses are already used within 10 days, e.g. Hole prostheses or Illigschalen.
The first custom-made eye prosthesis can be obtained within four to six weeks after surgery.
- the adjustment is basically not painful, but unfamiliar
- the prosthesis is movable according to the 6 eye muscles
- the color of an eye prosthesis does not change and does not fade
- the iris drawing is made of different colored glasses
- the drawing is covered with crystal glass and thus color
- natural shine is favored by the permanent (moist) closure of the eyelids
- the special glasses are biocompatible
- Glasses are tested for bodily compatibility
- the glasses meet the requirements of the MPG
- in the event of wear, a new production is carried out
- there should always be a suitable replacement art eye
- as a rule, an art eye can also be worn at night
- No lubricants are required when wearing the eye
- the eyelid keeps the eye permanently moist
In the case of increased lacrimation, itching in the orbit, and on the margins of the lids, it is clear that the eye prosthesis is worn out.
How long should you wear eye prostheses?
The eye prosthesis can be worn for 1 to 1.5 years with careful care. In children and adolescents a more frequent adaptation is necessary (about every 6 months). After this time, a renewal is recommended from both a medical and aesthetic point of view. Wearing an old or damaged eye prosthesis inevitably leads to an impairment of the eye socket. In case of concern, the ophthalmologist should be asked. If necessary, a prescription for new manufacture is issued on the basis of a corresponding finding of the conjunctiva. Only the regular ophthalmological examination and a timely renewal of the eye prosthesis by the experienced eye prosthesis can ensure your quality of life in this respect.
