EXENTERATION & RADICAL ORBIT CONDITIONS

Exenteration is not included within the range of our expertise.  Although on occasion we have taken on the challenge when it only required an unusually large ocular prosthesis for skin grafted sockets where the eyelids were retained, or for the less radical cases where there was partial loss of an eyelid or eyelids.  Since our experience is only in (medical grade) polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), we have made several prostheses with durable acrylic eyelids.  The more extensive facial prostheses made of silicone that have the appearance and feel of soft flexible skin, and require either adhesives, attachments or internal fixation retention devices, we would refer them to individuals skilled within the special profession of Anaplastology.

In the Journal of Ophthalmic Prosthetics (Volume 6, No. 1 Fall 2001), L. Daniel Eaton, BCO, IMFT had an article published entitled, 'Functional and Cosmetic Alloplastic Reconstruction of the Eye Socket, Orbit and Midface'.  A copy may be purchased through the ASO.  Mr. Eaton also has a web site: www.LDanielEaton.com

In addition to the above mentioned article relating to external orbital prostheses, we would also like to make reference C. W. Cox, Jr., BCO, FASO comments in the Spring Edition of Today's Ocularist in 1973.  He presented a short article on the "Illusion of Motion of Fixed Prosthetic Eyes" where he concluded "can be achieved with certain spectacle lenses in conjunction with the prostheses."
