Abstract: Loss of an eye has a negative impact on the psychological well-being of an individual. It is reported that a well fabricated prosthetic eye can resolve this issue within two years’ time. Various symptoms reported by prosthetic eye wearers include mucoid discharge, tearing, foreign body sensation, and irritation. The presence of mucoid discharge from the anophthalmic socket is also a factor that impacts the quality of life of prosthetic eye wearers. Studies from New Zealand and Germany have reported specific concerns which were present at the time of eye loss and concerns related to prosthesis wear in their respective countries. However, these concerns cannot be expected to be same in Mumbai, India. Secondly, it is reported that longstanding wear of prosthetic eyes was associated with diminution of goblet cells, abnormalities of the lid margin and meibomian glands. Several studies have described the relationship between ocular signs and symptoms in dry eye patients and contact lens wear. Since the environment for contact lens and prosthesis is similar. To our knowledge there is limited studies about Lid Wiper Epitheliopathy, Prosthesis related Papillary Conjunctivitis, Conjunctival staining, Dry Eye symptoms, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, and Naso-lacrimal Duct Obstruction in prosthetic eye wearers.
