Esthetics is a vital social concern. The loss of any part of the body can be an extremely discouraging occasion in a person's life. Loss of an eye because of tumors, congenital abnormalities, and trauma is one such troublesome situation. Eye prosthesis boosts the morale and makes the life socially acceptable. A correctly placed ocular prosthesis should reestablish the normal opening of the eye, support the eyelids, reestablish a degree of movement, and be satisfactorily held and esthetically satisfying. A customized acrylic eye fulfills all these requirements. In the current article, a new and economic technique was used to duplicate corneal prominence using a clear acrylic shell. The characterization was further done to give a life-like appearance to the eye prostheses.
