The loss of an eye is a problem that affects a person in various ways. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to reconstruct the harmony of the gaze with a functional and well-adapted ocular prosthesis. This allows individuals to lead a life without any additional inconvenience, and in most cases, it restores a confidence that would otherwise be severely diminished.
For over 60 years, our clinic in Barcelona has been providing ocular prostheses for babies, children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. We have ensured optimal aesthetic results and a rapid adaptation process for hundreds of patients, including those who have just undergone surgery or have other pathologies. We closely follow the latest scientific and technical advancements to advise our patients, if necessary, on the need for consultation with a specialized doctor for treatment and any necessary prosthetic corrections.
The ocular prostheses are made of high-quality polymethyl methacrylate acrylic. With proper care and regular polishing once a year, they can be worn for about 2 years. After this time, it is necessary to consider making a new prosthesis, both for aesthetic and medical reasons (wear of the surface layer). Wearing an excessively old or damaged prosthesis can lead to irreversible injuries to the eye socket. Generally, during the first six months after the operation and placement of the prosthesis, it should be readjusted due to the changes it produces in the eye socket.
