    I heard a friend of mine talking about it. They have a prosthetic eye that runs wires and electrodes to the vision center of the brain, allowing the person to see.

    My 10 year old brother has a prosthetic eye and it can move a little bit. and he will start to be able to move it more and more the longer he has it. how and why can they move? i would think all they could do was sit there.
    also what does it feel like to have it in or not have it in?

    A random question.
    I’m designing a doll and I want real glass eyes made as if a real person was getting it.

    Should I have an ocularist design the prosthetic eyes out of moonstone or amethyst crystal??

    Be serious.

    if i got a prosthetic eye put in , would it move and react with the other eye. im sure it would look real enough but how noticable is it. i would get one as long as it was able to move with the direction im looking with the other. would they be in sync with each other. thanks for the input.

    Hi, I’ve been using a prosthetic eye from the time my eye was removed when i was 6months old (i’m 28 at the moment). I’ve been using my current prosthesis for several years, but its now time for a change. Anyone know where I can get a new prosthetic from in SIngapore? tks.

    I am 13 turning 14 soon, I have one natural green eye (lost the other due to cancer) and I am thinking of getting a new one since I’ve had my current (green) prosthetic eye for a while now. I was wondering if I should get a blue eye instead of just my natural colour.

    Thanks guys!
