It is recommended to have your ocular prosthesis professionally resurfaced every 6 months. Resurfacing removes plaque buildup from the prosthesis and allows for inspection to determine if there is any deterioration or breakdown of the material, if the eye is fitting the socket correctly, and if there is an indication that the prosthesis requires replacement or adjustment. This will also help prolong the life of the prosthesis.

A custom ocular conformer is a clear plastic piece molded from an impression taken of the eye socket. This is usually recommended for maintaining the integrity of the socket and/or encouraging expansion to develop the eye socket for optimal results when fit with an ocular prosthesis.
