Longevity of the Ocular prosthesis


Over the years, the cavity and surrounding tissues may change so that the ocular prosthesis no longer fits as well. This can also happen if you lose or put on weight suddenly or with some medication or treatments. Aging is another factor of socket changes

The colour of the sclera and iris    of your good eye can also change with age. The prosthesis does not have an eternal life. Although, the device does not have an expiry date, a regular visit to the Ocularist is a good way to know when is the time for a replacement. On average a prosthesis should be replaced every five years for an adult.
