How to clean the prosthesis
It is imperative NOT to use contact lens liquids, saline solutions, alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, which could ruin the surface of the prosthesis.
Whenever the prosthesis is removed it must never be left to soak in a liquid, but it should be washed, dried and replaced in its container with no cotton or other wrappings.
The wearer of the prosthesis can clean it, whenever necessary, as this will cause no damage to the socket or eyelids.
The ocular prosthesis must always be kept clean in order to avoid inflammation of the conjunctiva present in the socket/atrophic eye.
The cleaning of the prosthesis must be done using a neutral liquid soap, soaping the prosthesis well and then rinsing it in running water. The prosthesis must then be dried with a throw-away paper tissue before being reinserted.
Cleaning should be carried out once a week or more frequently if necessary.
