AUTHOR(S): Dr. Ritika Gupta, Dr. Trupti Dahane and Dr. Rasika Jhibkate
ABSTRACT:An ocular prosthesis is an artificial eye that replaces the natural eye following an enucleation, evisceration, or orbital exenteration. This maxillofacial prosthesis also boosts the lost social and mental well being of a patient.
