Abstract : The loss of an eye is an emotional and psychological setback to the patient. An ocular prosthesis is given to uplift the patient psychologically and to boost up patient’s self esteem and their social acceptance in the society. To improve the comfort and matching of the prosthesis with that of the adjacent natural eye a custom made ocular prosthesis is preferred. Ocular prosthesis can be given as stock eye shell or by fabrication of custom-made eye prosthesis by sclera painting. Advantages of custom-made eye prosthesis are well established over stock eye shell so, this article presents a case report of a patient-wearing stock eye shell with poor esthetics, and the same was replaced with custom-made eye prosthesis.
