Abstract


Facial disfigurement through the loss of an eye due to a road traffic accident can be devastating for the patient and may leave few options for an ophthalmologist, especially if the situation demands urgency. In the present case report, the patient had a major accident, which resulted in the severe disruption of the socket. The requirements of the prosthodontist regarding the morphology of the socket guided the ophthalmologist to undertake reconstructive surgery. The prosthesis was then fabricated such that both its longevity and the morphology of the socket were safe guarded.
