Please read our important medical disclaimer.
I am 56 years old and have been wearing an artificial eye since 1962. At the moment the eye glass looks very small and falls off sometimes. How can I replace it?
Please contact your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.). She will examine the eye and assess the health of the lining. A referral to an ocularist can then be made to have a new prosthetic shell created for you.
