Prosthetic Eye Movement

Everybody wants to maximize the motion of their prosthesis:

Maximizing prosthetic eye motion requires an impression fit prosthesis which is customized to maximize lid symmetry. A prosthesis can only move as much as the extraocular muscles allow it to move.  

Sometimes adjustments can be made to the shape to remove areas which impinge on the edges of the socket on extreme gazes.  We do not recommend pegging your prosthesis to increase motion because of the complications of infection of the implant.
