The eye is an important component of facial expression and an important vital organ. On the psychology of the patient, loss of eye has a crippling effect. Maxillofacial prostheses restore and replace stomatognathic and associated facial structures with artificial substitutes. The objectives of eye prosthesis are to improve the patient esthetics, restore and maintain the health of the remaining associated structures, consequently provide physical and mental well‑being. A case of a custom‑made ocular acrylic prosthesis is presented with acceptable fit, good retention, and esthetics.
