The human eye is one of the most important features of facial esthetics. The loss of an eye can have debilitating effects on the patient's physical, social, psychological, and overall mental attitude toward life. Loss of eye can be a result of enucleation, evisceration, or exenteration procedures to treat any underlying etiology. As a result, there is a dire need for an ocular prosthesis after the surgical procedures. Different materials and procedures can be used for the fabrication of an ocular prosthesis. This case report presents the fabrication of a semicustomized ocular prosthesis using a stock iris shell.
