Eye discomfort can occur for a number of reasons when you are living with a prosthetic eye. Individuals who experience a comfortable fit in the beginning stages of wearing their artificial eye can experience discomfort after a period of time. All wearers of prosthetic eyes experience things such as teary eyes and mucous discharge from their socket with the prosthetic as well as other issues. It is important to know what you can do to help prevent this at home, when to see your ocularist, and when to consult your ophthalmic practitioner.
