Ocular Prosthesis

Ocular prosthesis / artificial eye is a very thin hard shell which can be worn over a damaged eye under the eyelids (enucleated, eviscerated eye). Is made of PMMA (Poly (methyl methacrylate)) a special type of resin which is also known as acrylic or acrylic glass. There is myth about the artificial eyes or custom made ocular prosthesis that these are made of stone (and are called patthar ki ankh/ stone eyes) but that is not true they are actually made of PMMA and having long life with socket friendly features.
