Loss of eye, along with contents of the orbit may result from tumor ablative surgery, trauma, or burns, and may negatively affect social and psychological well.being of the patient. Conventional or implant retained orbital prostheses may be indicated, with or without plastic surgical intervention, to restore the appearance of the patient. Orbital prostheses fabricated from silicone, and retained by mechanical means such as spectacles, or adhesives, present an economically viable treatment option for patients who cannot afford implant.retained prostheses. This case report presents a simplified method of fabricating the silicone orbital prosthesis in a young patient with a history of orbital exenteration due to trauma. A. positive reaction was observed in patient's familiar and working surroundings postinsertion of the prosthesis, and the patient could socialize easily after wearing the prosthesis.
