How To Take Care Of Your Prosthetic Eye

Every single person is different, and your ocularist will have recommendations tailored specifically to you. These recommendations may include periodic removal, cleaning of the prosthesis with water and a tissue, and then careful inspection of the eye to insure no tissue residue is left on the prosthesis prior to reinsertion (which can cause a serious eye infection). An ocularist may recommend such a regimen daily, to every few months, depending on the eye wearer’s condition. The uniqueness of the maintenance regimen should be discussed thoroughly with a Board Certified Ocularist, and not be left to the patient’s discretion.
