Do you remember the story of the little girl who was born with a rare eye condition?
Baby Kensley was born with Anophthalmia, a rare condition that caused her to be born without eyes.
The good news is Baby Kensley has been fitted with prosthetic eyes.
An ocular prosthesis, artificial eye or glass eye is a type of craniofacial prosthesis that replaces an absent natural eye following an enucleation, evisceration, or orbital exenteration. The prosthesis fits over an orbital implant and under the eyelids.
If the entire eye is removed, an ocular implant and prosthesis prevent the tissues in the eye socket from growing to fill the empty space. A prosthetic eye cannot restore vision. After removal of the natural eye and placement of a prosthetic eye, a person will have no vision in that eye.
Isn’t she lovely?
