Removal & Insertion

Always, wash your hands and do it on top of a soft surface like a towel in case

the prostheses dropped to avoid chipping it or losing it.

Take your time and if you can’t do it the first time take a break and try again.

Your eyelids are holding your artificial eye in. To remove it gently pull down

your lower eyelid to reveal the edge of the prosthesis, using your fingertip or

an extractor release the bottom of it and let it come down from your upper lid

toward your cheeks.

To insert it back in, insert it up under the upper eyelid first and then pull down the lower lid to slip it under it. Remember first to check the right position, the number that is in the prosthesis goes always on the top.
