Glass prostheses are made of cryolite glass (Na6Al2F12-additive). The advantages of this material are its extremely smooth surface and good wettability through human tear fluid.
Prostheses of this kind are very compatible and can be manufactured with only one consultation needed.
Change of Prostheses
An eye prosthesis needs to be replaced every one and a half year, provided it is carefully cared for and cleaned regularly. A replacement of the eye prosthesis at that time is called for due to medical and aesthetic reasons. An examination is required for every new prosthesis. We therefore advise to get an appointment and personally visit our institute during our surgery hours.
Please avoid wearing a prosthesis which is too old or one that is even damaged: This could seriously damage your eye socket.
