Subjective Perception of Ocular Prosthesis Wear


The loss of an eye, whether congenital or acquired, is a severe psychological trauma with negative impact on the quality of life of the patient. While rehabilitation with a customized ocular prosthesis anatomically restores the facial appearance, the final outcome is largely determined by the subjective satisfaction of the patient. By investigating the level of subjective perception, the quality of care can be improved.
