Prosthetic eyes are also known as ocular prosthetics or artificial eyes. They are custom made from acrylic plastics one at a time.  Even though artificial eyes made from blown glass have not been fit since the 1940’s in North America, the term glass eye is sometimes used as well.

There are two types of ocular prosthetics, the scleral shell and the conventional prosthesis:

A scleral shell is fit to a blind globe or following an ocular evisceration surgery. They are typically thinner than a conventional prosthesis.

A conventional prosthesis is generally fit following an enucleation surgery, where the globe is surgically removed entirely and a spherical shaped implant is inserted into the cavity.

Other products include custom conformers for specialized surgery and on the very odd occasion prosthetics for cinematic special effects or museum standards.
