In brief: Prosthesis

Clean the prosthesis every day with soap and water. Avoid damage to the prosthesis-- try to avoid creating any chipped or sharp edges that might hurt the eye socket.

In brief: Care: artificial eye

Artificial eyes are plastic, require daily cleaning and annual check up with the artificial eye fabricator (ocularist).
Some sockets are dry and lubricating drops are needed. Occasionally infection occurs and this needs treatment. The ocularist is the contact person for these needs and should be seen if there is a problem.
