Non-surgical Approach to Improve Prognosis of Ocular Prostheses for Grade III and IV Contracted Sockets ZH01-ZH02
2/273, Viramkhand, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.
Patients with Grade III or IV contracted ocular sockets, most often due to Post Enucleation Socket Syndrome (PESS), suffer from loss of ocular volume along with a lax lower eyelid, which complicates prosthetic rehabilitation in terms of fit as well as aesthetics. Surgical correction is preferable, though not always feasible. A non-invasive approach for prosthetic rehabilitation of such difficult cases, using bandaging and progressively larger conformers is described here.
