What is an ocular prosthesis?

An prothèsocular prosthesis is a medical device designed to replace an absent or defective eye. The materials used in their manufacture are biocompatible, and chosen specifically for their good tolerance. It is made of resin to resemble a normal eye in terms of shape, colour and movement.

The main purpose of an ocular prosthesis is to improve aesthetic appearance and restore vision, particularly for people who have lost their eyes as a result of illness or accident. However, it is important to note that the prosthesis does not provide real vision.


As eye prosthetists for over 20 years, we make and fit custom-made ocular prostheses in our laboratory in Caen, Normandy.

Thanks to our total mastery of the production chain, we are able to guarantee patients optimum quality, while meeting tight deadlines.

Each prosthesis is specially designed and made to measure to meet the unique needs of each patient. The variety of shapes and colours is therefore unlimited, offering a unique prosthesis for every individual.

The purpose of an ocular prosthesis is aesthetic rather than optical. It is intended for people who have had a mutilation or malformation of the eyeball in order to give them back their eyes.

We work in collaboration with your ophthalmologist or surgeon to create and monitor your prosthesis.

We make ocular prostheses from an impression of the cavity or from a pre-form. They are then manufactured in resin using biocompatible materials that comply with CE regulations.

Our advice on removing an ocular prosthesis

If you are using a suction cup, apply it directly to the central part of the prosthesis and pull upwards in a rocking motion.

If you have difficulty putting on or removing your ocular prosthesis, or if you have any questions about how to do so, please consult your doctor or your ocular prosthesist. They can provide you with personalised instructions and help you find the best way to fit your prosthesis safely and confidently.

Comment entretenir une prothèse oculaire

To live well with an ocular prosthesis, it is important to follow your doctor’s and prosthesis supplier’s instructions for proper fitting and maintenance. You should see your ocularist for polishing at least once a year. It is also important to ensure that the prosthesis is comfortable and to speak to a professional if any pain or comfort problems occur.

Prostheses may also require regular adjustment as the shape of the eyeball changes.
