Introduction: Eyes are among the first features of the face to be noticed. Loss of an eye leaves a psychological impact on the patient. Custom-made eye prosthesis is a good option to rehabilitate such defects. Positioning the iris to the ideal symmetrical position is a cardinal step in the fabrication of an ocular prosthesis.

Methodology: A 30-year-old male patient reported with the chief complaint of missing a left eye due to an automobile injury, 5 years ago. On examination, the left eye socket exhibited eyelid constriction, reduced size, and depth. A decision was made to fabricate a customized ocular prosthesis. All the procedures were carried out in a conventional manner until iris positioning. Iris positioning was done with the new “laser pointer Apparatus”. The measures for the normal eye were obtained with it and were replicated on the affected eye. The laboratory procedures were meticulously followed and the prosthesis was delivered.

Conclusion: The paper elaborates on the technique of fabricating a custom-made ocular prosthesis with the use of a laser pointer apparatus. The technique described using a Laser Pointer Device in this article is an accurate, affordable, easy-to-use, and comfortable to the patient and recommended for clinical use in small setups.
