ABSTRACT:The disorders leading to surgical removal of ocular contents result in ocular defects. The amount of tissue removal and time interval between the surgical procedures and prosthesis fabrication are the important factor for prognosis of ocular prosthesis. Fabrication of a custom made prosthesis gives better tissue adaptation thus the movement of prosthesis is enhanced and also provides esthetics. This case report describes the fabrication of custom made ocular prosthesis where the digital camera was used to fabricate the iris portion of a prosthesis which allowed proper color matching and exact size of the iris. Comfort, movement and retention of a prosthesis, appropriate color and size matching of the iris portion improved the esthetics and patient’s self-confidence.
