Abstract: The custom-made ocular prosthesis contributes to enhanced tissue health of the anophthalmic socket. For this purpose, an acrylic resin ocular prosthesis may be modified, by using an appropriate dental impression material and being adapted closely to the anophthalmic socket. The modeling impression material is subsequently replaced by acrylic resin. This article describes the application of a viscoelastic tissue conditioner material, as an impression medium for prosthetic modification of an ocular prosthesis. The tissue conditioner material exhibits favorable tissue compatibility, adhesion to acrylic resin, and detailed surface registration. These advantages facilitate the clinical procedure and evaluation of modifications made to the ocular prosthesis.
