A prosthetic eye can help improve the appearance of people who have lost an eye to injury or disease. It's commonly called a "glass eye" or "fake eye."
The prosthetic eye includes:
oval, whitish outer shell finished to duplicate the white color of the other eye
round, central portion painted to look like the iris and pupil of the other eye
Implanting a prosthetic eye (ocular prosthesis) is almost always recommended after an eye is surgically removed due to damage or disease.
