Custom Artificial Eye vs. Stock Eye
Learn the difference between Artificial vs Stock Eyes
Custom prosthetic eyes are superior to stock prosthetic eyes in a number of ways. Firstly, custom prosthetic eyes are made to fit the individual patient’s eye socket precisely, ensuring a comfortable and natural-looking fit. This is especially important because ill-fitting prosthetic eyes can cause discomfort and irritation, and may even lead to long-term health problems such as socket deformities.
Secondly, custom prosthetic eyes are designed to match the patient’s natural eye color and structure as closely as possible. This means that the prosthetic eye will look more realistic and natural, improving the patient’s appearance and self-confidence. In contrast, stock prosthetic eyes are mass-produced and do not offer the same level of customization, resulting in a less natural and less aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Custom prosthetic eyes are made using high-quality materials and processes, ensuring durability and longevity. Stock prosthetic eyes, on the other hand, are often made with cheaper materials and may not last as long. This means that patients who opt for custom prosthetic eyes may save money in the long run by not having to replace their prosthetic eyes as frequently.
Custom prosthetic eyes offer many benefits over stock prosthetic eyes. They provide a better fit, a more natural appearance, and are made with higher-quality materials, resulting in a more comfortable and long-lasting prosthetic eye.
