This is the process whereby the prosthetist/ocularist uses special polishing compounds designed for the specific acrylic used to manufacture the artificial eye.
Polishing brings the anterior and posterior aspect of the prosthesis back to its original lustre.
This process should be done every 6-12 months. Some people who cannot handle their own prosthesis visit their ocularist every 2-3 months.
It takes approximately 15-30 minutes. The prosthetist/ocularist will also check the socket and surrounding tissue.
