The rehabilitation of facial defects is a complex task requiring a specific design of the technique to be used in individual patient. The disfigurement associated with the loss of an eye can cause significant physical and emotional problems. Various treatment modalities are available, one of which is implants. Although implant orbital prosthesis has a superior outcome, it may not be advisable in all patients due to economic factors. The present article describes a simplified technique for the fabrication of a silicone orbital prosthesis by modifying a stock ocular prosthesis to achieve ideal fit and esthetics. Multidisciplinary management and team approach are essential in providing accurate and effective rehabilitation.
