Loss of an eye to disease or trauma (injury) is an unfortunate incident, with its implications beyond just the loss of vision. The continued suffering of a painful or disfigured eye and the social the stigma attached leads to psychological setbacks for the patient.
For all such patients, we bring the good looks and confidence back with our custom made artificial eye/ customised ocular prosthesis. It is an artificial eye, made of acrylic, after taking measurements from your damaged eye, to closely match the size, colour and look of your normal another eye. Once fitted, it becomes difficult to differentiate from a normal eye. It is only a cosmetic procedure and does not provide vision.
Akal Eye Hospital is the first and the only centre in North India to make the customized ocular prosthesis. Also, we are the only centre in India where an ophthalmologist makes the prosthesis, best suited to the patient’s needs. Most other artificial eye centres use stock eyes (readymade artificial eyes) for the prosthesis which are associated with multiple problems. We offer custom-made ocular prosthesis, which makes for superior user-comfort and a better look (as close to the natural eye as possible).
