PROSTHETIC EYE REHABILITATION OF A PATIENT WITH STURGE WEBER SYNDROME
Eye loss is a devastating psychological event as the patient loses his sight and part of his face as well; a physical and emotional trauma. Many treatment modalities are available for prosthetic rehabilitation of an enucleated socket that will help the patient to restore his confidence and facial acceptance. This report describes the rehabilitation of an enucleated eye socket with a custom made prosthetic eye. In this case, the eye loss was due to glaucoma associated with Sturge-Weber Syndrome.
