The clinic at SCEH is among the very few in India offering specialised fabrication and maintenance of artificial eyes for patients.
Set up in 2011 due to the growing demand from patients across India, the clinic offers customised ocular prosthesis to people who lose their eyeballs due to a trauma. This facility is equipped with latest 3D technology for fabrication and customisation to match the eye colour and give the perception of a real eye – as close to the natural eye as possible.
Over the years, the clinic has supported thousands of people who have had to suffer due to loss of function of one eye, a disfigured eye, and even social stigma.
The clinic – established under the stewardship of the department of Orbit, Oculoplasty & Ocular Oncology – caters to the needs of all patients, whether operated in-house (tertiary and secondary centres) or referred to by government and private eye hospitals. It has the capacity to deliver a customised artificial eye in less than 48 hours.
