OCULAR PROSTHETICS DEPARTMENT
A unique department specializing in the science, art and craft of fabricating and fitting of custom artificial eyes, or commonly called “Fake Eye”. Loss or disfigurement of an eye due to an injury, eye tumour or an infection inside the eye or a shrunken eye can be devastating and it invariably affects your aesthetic beauty. That apart, when the eye or its components are removed through surgical procedures such as Enucleation (removal of the entire eyeball) or Evisceration (removal of jelly-like portion inside the eye), it requires restoration with the fitting of a Custom Artificial Eye. It prevents the tissues in the eye socket from growing to fill the empty space. A prosthetic eye can improve the appearance of the affected eye socket. A prosthetic eye cannot restore vision.
This situation speaks volume of the necessity to know how important it is for prosthetic eye to be both beautiful and natural. Our Ocularist uses advanced art and sculpting techniques to create the most lifelike artificial eye with the most natural and wonderful appearance, ensuring world class quality.
Lastly, at Giridhar Centre for Ocular Prosthetics, you can be rest assured that lifelike artificial eye is no more a teasing illusion or a promise of unreality, but a stark reality.
