Rub eye with lid closed towards nose

  • If the eye bothers you so that it must be wiped or rubbed, always close the eyelids and wipe toward the nose. Wiping away from the nose can often cause the eye to fall out.

Prevent accidental disposal
Never leave your prosthesis in a piece of facial tissue. Several left in this way for just a minutes have been picked up and thrown away. Some have been burned with the waste papers.

 Water Sport Safety

  • If you swim, dive or water ski, either wear a protective patch or swimming goggles-or remove the eye and store it safely. More eyes have been lost during these sports than in any other way. Cold weather, dry weather and wind tend to make prosthetic eye uncomfortable. Some lubrication eye drops may reduce or relieve the discomfort.
  • Keep away from solvents
  • Never expose the prosthetic eye in any way to alcohol, ether chloroform, hair sprays or any other solvents. These can damage the plastic beyond repair. 

Remove prosthesis for surgery

  • Be sure to remove the prosthesis before having any surgery, anesthetics can damage the surface of the plastic, requiring expensive reprocessing or even replacement with a new eye.
  • Practice extreme cleanliness
  • Always practice extreme cleanliness when handling your prosthetic eye. If your eye should happen to fall out, be sure to rinse it thoroughly and then wash it with mild soap and water before reinserting it to your eye socket.

When to polish the prosthesis

Have your eye checked and polished once a year or twice for some patient to ensure best condition. Do not let anyone other than us or someone we recommend, polish your artificial eye. Polishing compounds used by many eye fitters, dentists, opticians and others will not polish as highly as necessary for the greatest comfort. Also, the technician must take care not to change the contours of the eye, which might result in a poor fit. Few understand the importance of the shapes which are achieved in the modified impression method we use.
 

Wear protective glasses

Wear your protective glasses from the minutes you have finished washing our face in the morning until you go to bed each night. Even when you are alone and least expecting it, an object could fly at your remaining eye. You no longer have a spare eye. Protect the one you have.

Eye Check-Up

Have your ophthalmologist check your good eye at least once a year. As long as you are perfectly comfortable and the eye still looks fine, do not do anything between yearly check-ups and polishing. Except for slowly changing appearance, which you might not be aware of, if your eye needs care, it will let you know.

Never put the prosthetic eye in your mouth because it can cause choking and may lead to death.
