Caring for Your Artificial Eye

Once or twice a month, remove the prosthesis with clean hands and inspect it closely. If deposits are seen, scrub the prosthesis with a wet cotton ball. Please note that only 100% cotton balls should be used. Synthetic “cotton balls” will damage the surface of your prosthesis.

Place the prosthesis in a small, clean container. Pour a solution of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide over the prosthesis and let it sit for 15-20 minutes to disinfect. Rinse it thoroughly with a sterile saline solution and, leaving it wet, insert the prosthesis as directed by your Ocularist.

If the prosthesis is not positioned correctly, remove it and reinsert. Call Erickson’s for detailed instructions relating to your specific case.
