What Happens During A
Prosthetic Eye Surgery in Rochester?
Eye removal involves a surgery to remove the damaged eye through a precise and thorough process. Once the eye is removed, a prosthetic implant is placed to take the place of the eye. Once the orbit is healed, a prosthesis is custom-made to correctly compliment the opposite eye. A prosthetic eye is typically created from glass to ensure a smooth, realistic shape and appearance. Dr. Whipple delivers expert care and precision in the eye removal and prosthetic insertion processes.
