Individual ocular prosthetics.
An individual eye prosthesis is the quickest and the most effective route to a better an more comfortable life for our patients. Individual prosthetics can achieve the maximum cosmetic effect, taking into account the particular aspects of each person's eye socket. As a consequence, the prosthesis won't cause discomfort, thus facilitating communication and improving social interactions.
The process of creating a prosthesis in our Centre includes the following stages:
The process starts with a medical examination by a doctor from the Centre’s medical department. The doctor examines the eye socket in order to determine if a prosthetic is possible, makes recommendations on the choice of material, explains the advantages and disadvantages of the chosen material, and gives advice on care and maintenance of the prosthesis and eye socket. After the examination, the doctor will complete an order for the glassblowers, indicating the shape, size and material (glass or plastic) for the prosthesis. Sometimes it's necessary for the client to wear a more complex prosthesis for some time (1.5-2 hours) in order to detect specific reactions by the eye socket.
The client will then meet the head of production, who will invite the prosthetics master to define the iris colour of the prosthetic eye. At this stage, the contract is signed and payment is made.
During the production process, the client may need to have an intermediate fitting, which is why clients are urged to remain near the Centre.
In the presence of the client, the doctor checks the correct shape and colour of the finished prosthesis, and the head of production inspects the quality.
All of our prostheses are properly licensed, and a copy of the product license can be obtained in the administration office.
are made using several types of glass (scleral, corneal, coloured), each with its own patented formula. The resulting prosthesis is lightweight, well moistened by tears, and has very smooth surface thanks to fire polishing. It's important to remember that glass is quite fragile. A glass prosthetic eye demands care and good maintenance. A prosthetic can be worn for one year.
Our masters, highly qualified glassblowers, can complete a glass prosthetic eye in 1-2 days.
Plastic prostheses are very durable. They can be worn for two years, or twice as long as a glass prosthesis. A plastic prosthesis is safe and resistant to the effects of the environment. However, this type of of prosthesis is slightly heavier than a glass prosthesis. Don't worry! Our physician will consult with you regarding the material that will best suit your needs.
A plastic prosthetic eye can be ready in 2-3 days.
There is a simpler option in eye prosthetics — a ready-made prosthesis (you can choose from more than 5,000 colours and shapes). This option is cheaper than a custom eye prosthesis, although it is also more difficult to achieve an ideal match in appearance. This option is the best for a post-surgery prosthesis, when the patient needs a temporary prosthetic eye to form the shape of the eye socket after surgery. In this case, the cosmetic effect is secondary due to limited period of wear for the post-surgery prosthesis and the need to replace it once the recovery period is over.
Restoration of a polymeric prosthesis
During the life of the person who uses an eye prosthesis, their eye cavity can change (for example, when children grow up, their eye sockets grow as well). If such changes aren't significant, the size of the prosthesis can be modified by restoration. *Possibility of restoration is to be consulted with the ophthalmologist and the head of production in each individual case*
Polishing of a polymeric prosthesis
This service is cheaper and simpler than restoring a polymer prosthesis. It's a good way to "renovate" your prosthesis and restore the original shine, if necessary. *Suitability for this service will be determined through consultation with the ophthalmologist and head of production in each individual case*
The Centre offers eye examinations and treatment of various ocular disorders, including vision correction through glasses or contact lenses.
Our doctors are first class ophthalmologists with doctoral degrees in medicine
