7 days after the operation, we fit the first provisional prosthesis at our Hamburg office. We exchange the temporary prosthesis, usually inserted during the operation and fit in a pre-fabricated glass prosthesis. During this consultation we are prepared to answer all your questions in detail and to make you familiar with the handling of the prosthesis.
When after 2-3 weeks the patient has got used to his/her prosthesis and following shrinkage of the swollen tissue we will manufacture a custom-made prosthesis in the patient’s presence who will be able to take it home immediately.
After 6 months
Usually, at this point of time all post- operative changes are completed so that it is reasonable and necessary to provide a final prosthesis. Following this, renewal of the ocular prosthesis once per year is recommended due to wear of the glass surface.
