- Environmental influence
- Condition of the eye socket
- Strength of the secretion
- Inadequate eyelid closure etc.
- Natural wear and tear due to the action of the corrosive tear fluid
- Average wearing time: 1-2 years
- In the case of increased environmental pollution, the wearing time can be reduced
The question of whether the artificial eye can be worn day and night should be decided on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the ocularist.
- hard and smooth surface, as fire-polished
- good wettability of glass
- tear film does not tear t, the surface of the prosthesis does not dry out
- good biological compatibility, as it is made of inorganic material
- the patient receives his prosthesis immediately after a single visit
- lifelike replica
- inconspicuous wearing
- problem-free fit and therefore personal safety
- one-off, individually created and adapted
- made of cryolite glass (free of any lead content) or plastic (PMMA)
- optimal mucous membrane compatibility due to the resistant surface
- eyes made of glass are made hollow or as a thin shell prosthesis
- type of prosthesis is determined by the ocularist according to the condition of the eye socket
- See also:
- Repairing a damaged prosthesis is not possible
- Should the eye break, pick up fragments for new manufacture
- Optimal adaptation of the prosthesis only possible in person
Verur a worn artificial eye mild discomfort in the eye socket. The surface of the prosthesis, which has become rough, can severely irritate the eye socket. The first sign that the prosthesis needs to be replaced is increased tear flow. The eye socket becomes red and in the further course there may be a thick, yellowish discharge. At this stage, ophthalmological help must be sought in order to prevent the inflammation from spreading to the entire eye socket. A regular check of the eye socket by your ophthalmologist and the eventual annual renewal of the eye prosthesis by the expert ocularist ensures that the artificial eye can be worn without any problems.
Outside Europe, various countries are supplied with collection eyes (eye prostheses in different colors, sizes and anatomical shapes). Custom-made products are also available for hospital needs (e.g. Illig shells, perforated prostheses).
In Germany, all statutory health insurers cover the costs of eye prostheses. An own share of 10 EUR
remains, provided that there is no exemption from the additional payment.
