Ocular prosthesis is the artificial eyeball given to patients with critical eye conditions that often results in the complete removal of the eye.

Speaking at a public lecture as part of events to mark the World Ocular Prothesis Day, Ghana's only ocularist, Evelyn Kyere, revealed that the procedure continues to provide eyesight to hundreds of persons suffering from severe eye conditions.

“Getting an artificial eye does not require any surgical procedure and it is a handmade procedure. The prosthesis cannot see even though it looks like a normal eye. There are no pains after the procedure, as well as no side infections,” she revealed.
