Loss of an Eye and Ocular Prosthetics

Traumatic accidents and treatment of ocular and orbital cancers, blind and painful eyes, and other diseases sometimes lead to the need for reconstruction of the orbit (eye socket) and removal of an eye with subsequent placement of an orbital implant. With advances in orbital implant materials and surgical techniques, the cosmetic outcome is frequently excellent after surgery, and pain is almost always permanently relieved.

Along the Front Range, Dr. Fante works closely with several excellent Ocularists who create custom eye prostheses for patients who have lost an eye.
