The scleral shell prosthesis is a thin hard acrylic shell-like artificial eye. This type of eye prosthesis
is worn over a damaged and/or disfigured eye or eviscerated globe. The shell prosthesis covers the entire surface of the eye,
restoring it to a natural appearance. In most cases, there is no surgery involved in obtaining the scleral shell prosthesis.
The fitting process involves making an alginate impression of the cosmetically blemished eye. This will allow the ocularist to
create an anatomically correct and comfortable prosthesis. An impression fit shell will also provide maximum comfort, movement,
and wearing time.
