Prosthetic Contact Lens

Prosthetic contact lenses are prescribed to hide scars and improve the appearance of an eye that might have disfigured since birth defect, trauma, or eye disease.
If certain structures of the injured or disfigured eye also fail to function properly, special prosthetic lenses can be designed to block excess light from reaching the back of the eye to reduce glare and increase comfort.
