Even if we can manage esthetic loss by giving artificial prosthesis but functional loss (eyesight) cannot be managed. This situation is even more difficult to manage when patient is child.

Ocular stock shell is relined to get a prosthesis which is more accurately adapting to socket.

Conclusion: Ocular prosthesis made by this method provides better esthetics and function.
