Case 19

Microphthalmia is a developmental disorder of the eye that literally means ‘small eye’.
He was born with a microphthalmic right eye. He was teased at school to the point where he lost all self-confidence and belief. This affected his attitude to life and his education. Now in her 30’s, he is forward looking and happy about his job as a manager. He has accepted that there are many more important things in life than worrying about his eye as now it is not different from the other one.
Treatment: Because of his orbital implant, the socket provided an excellent foundation for the custom artificial eye which moves well and is hardly differentiable from natural eye.
