Has anyone tried a scleral shell? It seems to correct all cosmetic differences. I would consider having my eye removed if the prostetic would like better. Which one is better in appearance?.
I had a scleral shell for a few years. Then over time the doctor recommended it be enoculated for various reasons. He implanted the coral implant.
I can't remember if the scleral shell moved as well as my plastic eye does. They may move as well as each other. They both look the same as far as appearance goes. The only difference is instead of having the implant you have your eye to help move the shell realistically. They are both 'half plastic eyes' and look very similiar. The movement is the thing you may want to check on but I think the shell did fine.
I tried to keep my eye as long as I could, even if it was hidden behind the plastic shell. One of the biggest reasons I didn't want my eye removed unless necessary was the nerves that were supposedly were 'scraped' away. And of course it was a part of me, however hideous my eye looked.
