A case of unilateral evisceration is described. Each individual copes in a unique way to the loss of eye. Orbital defects with total or partial loss of eyeball cannot be satisfactorily repaired by reconstructive surgery. While prosthetic replacement is the treatment of choice owing to its acceptable and life like appearance, retention of the ocular prosthesis is an important factor for the success of the prosthesis. This paper describes a modified technique for fabrication and retention of an ocular prosthesis.
