Loss of an eye can be caused by cancer, trauma, or congenital defects. A loss of eye creates functional, esthetic, and psychological lacunae in individual's personal and professional life. Rehabilitation of ocular defect can be done by a custom ocular prosthesis fabricated with heat cure polymethylmethacrylate. The custom-made prosthesis provides a better fit, is more comfortable to use and gives better cosmetic results than a stock prosthesis. The main objective of this article is to describe a new technique of customization using digital photograph of the patient's iris made using a digital camera to give excellent cosmetic results to the patient.
