Artificial eyes date all the way back to ancient times, when pharoahs would have their eyes surgically removed and replace them with gold eyes so people would think they were gods. More recently, going back to the 1600’s, artificial were made of glass. With the invention of modern plastics came the new acrylic eye, which has several advantages over traditional methods. Acrylic eyes can be custom fit, do not shatter, and can incorporate digital prints.
The latest advancement in prosthetic eyes is the incorporation of digital graphics and printing methods to convey a level of aesthetic detail unachievable by human hands.
