EXENTERATION & RADICAL ORBIT CONDITIONS
Exenteration is not included within the range of our expertise.

it only required an unusually large ocular prosthesis for
skin grafted sockets where the eyelids were retained, or

made several prostheses with durable acrylic eyelids.

have the appearance and feel of soft flexible skin, and require
either adhesives, attachments or internal fixation retention

the special profession of Anaplastology.
