The exact matching of the artificial eye prosthesis with contralateral eye is the main aim of any maxillofacial prosthodontist to achieve adequate esthetics. Ocular prosthesis can be given as stock eye shell or by modifying a stock eye by making an impression of the ocular defect. Another method is a fabrication of custom-made eye prosthesis by sclera painting or using digital photograph. Advantages of custom-made eye prosthesis are well established over stock eye shell so, this article presents a case report of patient-wearing stock eye shell with poor esthetics, and the same was replaced with custom-made eye prosthesis fabricated using an image taken with the digital statutory liquidity ratio camera to gain the superior ocular esthetics.
