with totally realistic results
OUR OCULAR PROSTHETIC HAS BEEN DEVELOPED USING THE MOST STATE-OF-THE-ART AND RELIABLE MATERIALS THAT ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY PROVIDE. WE USE ACRYLIC RESINS THAT ARE ANTI-ALLERGENIC, LONG-LASTING, AND AESTHETICALLY APPEALING.
WE BELIEVE THAT COMMUNICATION WITH THE PROSTHETIC PATIENT IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE PROPER FITTING OF AN OCULAR PROSTHETIC,
AND WE TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE PSYCHOLOGICAL STATE OF THE PATIENT WITH THE HELP OF THE OCULARIST'S EXPERIENCE AND PROFESSIONALISM.
We begin by using an impression mold or other advanced fitting techniques to precisely contour or manipulate the anophthalmic socket.
These techniques allow us to optimize the appearance, weight, comfort, and movement of the prosthetic. We use the best and most appropriate techniques for each patient.
In a large number of cases, such as those involving enucleation, evisceration, or an atrophic globe, the customization of the mold enables the transmission of the socket's movements to the ocular prosthetic, thereby giving it greater vitality and dynamism.
We then apply an analytical system, using the healthy eye as a model, that allows us to reproduce all the chromatic elements of the iris, the tonality of the sclera, and the corresponding vasculature.
Since our ocular prosthetics are developed in their entirety using the most advanced techniques in everything from digital technology to the fine arts, we have access to all the latest special features. ART-LENS goes one step further to improve the manufacture and use of its ocular prosthetic by incorporating an anti-allergenic layer that gives a new dimension to the use and comfort of the artificial eye.
Once the prosthetic has been made, it is then polished to perfection in order to prevent irritation of the conjunctiva and give it the shine necessary for a natural look.
The next step is to fit the ocular prosthetic by adapting it to the needs of each patient.
The plastic material (polymethylmethacrylate) exhibits a series of properties that make it conducive to fitting the orbital socket.
To conclude, we will explain the maintenance and use of the artificial eye.
We work in a team to provide each of our patients with the highest-quality service. Our approach is unique in our field, encouraging peer review to obtain the best possible results. Our team has developed advanced techniques in art and sculpture to recreate the totally real appearance of our ocular prosthetics.
These techniques focus on carefully combining the contours and folds of the eyelid along with other features involved in achieving facial symmetry.
DETERIORATION OF THE EYEBALL'S APPEARANCE CAN BE SUCCESSFULLY CORRECTED WITH THE USE OF A THIN PIECE THAT COVERS IT COMPLETELY.
THE MEDICAL TERM FOR AN EYE IN THIS CONDITION IS PHTHISIS BULBI. WE HAVE A UNIQUE TECHNIQUE FOR THE MANUFACTURING OF THIS TYPE OF PIECE THAT USES DETAILED COLORING TO PERFECTLY MATCH THE ORIGINAL EYE.
IN ADDITION, AT ARTLENS WE USE A SPECIAL SYMMETRIC SECONDARY ENLARGEMENT TECHNIQUE TO OPEN THE EYELID.
IN THIS TYPE OF CASE, THE OCULAR PROSTHETIC HAS EXTRAORDINARY MOVEMENT BECAUSE THE NATURAL EYE REMAINS UNDER THE PIECE, GIVING THE PROSTHETIC ALMOST A FULL RANGE OF MOTION.
3D iris color
Using a digital graphics process that brings together digital technology and the fine arts, we replicate the natural structure of the eye and the color of the iris to produce a spectacular 3D effect.
Our manufacturing process adds a new dimension by incorporating an anti-allergenic layer onto the posterior side of the ocular prosthetic that leaves the piece totally encapsulated. This material makes it possible for the prosthetic eye to remain in its socket for at least 1 month if the patient is responsible for its cleaning or 5 to 6 months if cleaning is done by the ocularist, resulting in fewer secretions and increased comfort for the patient.
Our express service requires only one night in Barcelona to produce your prosthetic eye. We also offer a same-day delivery service.
