Custom Ocular Prosthesis as a Palliative Aid for a Pediatric Patient with a Surgical Enucleation following Retinoblastoma

Umesh Pai, Nikita Lolayekar, Varsha Umanathan.

Abstract
Background & Aims: Congenital absence or loss of the ocular globe during childhood not only compromises the normal development of the orbital region, it causes esthetic and psycho-social disturbances as well. Literature demonstrates the necessity of prevention and early detection in order to minimize the sequelae and disturbances in orbital growth. The purpose of this article is to highlight customized scleral shell prosthesis as a simple yet effective treatment modality for opthalmic pediatric patients

Methods: For this anophthalmic pediatric patient who reported to us, we decided to fabricate a customized ocular prosthesis by modifying the stock eye prosthesis. Clinical relevance: Fabrication and installation of eye prosthesis is essential to the rehabilitation process especially in a child, so as to produce satisfactory development of the region and for their emotional wellbeing.

Key words: Ocular prosthesis, scleral shell, anophthalmos, retinoblastoma
