Prostheses for children
Our made-to-measure ocular prostheses for children are the most advanced in Italy, the fruit of our laboratory’s hundred years of experience and of the medical innovation which is aided by exchanges with the leading international ocularists and experts. Our ocular prostheses for children permit a natural development of the bone of the eye socket and of the eyelids to ensure the child’s correct facial development.
We provide a path which is shared with the best paediatric ophthalmologists and national paediatric hospitals, which starts with the initial visit to a specialist, continuing with the realisation of a temporary prosthesis and then with a made-to-measure one, continuing along a customised path for the ocular prostheses for children and free specialised assistance, also in remote, for every possible need.

OUR CUSTOMISED PROSTHESES
The fruit of our hundred years’ experience, the maximum in terms of customisation and quality.
First appointementAll the children who accede to our services are evaluated by the ophthalmologist together with the head of the team of ocularists. The fitting of the prosthesis, above all on a baby, must always be carried out under the care of an ophthalmologist.
TEMPORARY PROSTHESESChildren undergoing the removal of an eye (enucleation/evisceration) are fitted with a temporary prosthesis which will later be replaced by a customised one as soon as the scarring of the eye socket has healed. In the presence of an atrophic eye (due to trauma or disease) a temporary prosthesis is fitted which will later be replaced by a customised one after the adaptation period which is decided upon by the medical staff. Our medical and prosthetic team, in collaboration with the leading national and international children’s hospitals, has developed a customised technique for children born with ocular malformations (anophthalmia/microphthalmia): from the initial fitting we use an aesthetic prosthesis in place of a transparent conformer.
OUR CUSTOMISED PROSTHESESAll of our customised prostheses are made using the traditional technique of “moulage” (casting/moulding), thanks to our exchanges with international ocularists. The relief of the cast of the socket or of the eye permits us to obtain the maximum adherence between the socket/eye consenting an optimal movement of the prosthesis and the maximum comfort for the patient. All of the irises are hand-painted with three-dimensional colours, reproducing faithfully the collateral eye.Permitting the immediate aesthetic recovery for the child which is essential in bringing about his/her correct psychological development and without impeding social interaction with other children.
CUSTOMISED PATHAfter the fitting of the customised prosthesis on the child there will be a personalised path of check-ups decided upon together with the parents of the young patient, in order to obtain the maximum comfort and the best possible aesthetic outcome. The parents of the young patient are trained in the use and maintenance of the prosthesis. From the age of five or six children will generally be able to manage the prosthesis independently. All patients and parents of minors can consult our doctors on the phone. A free check-up in Roma or Milano can be requested.
