Abstract

Maxillofacial prostheses which restore and replace stomatognathic and associated facial structures with artificial substitutes aim to improve the patient aesthetics, restore and maintain health of the remaining structures and consequently provide physical and mental wellbeing. The objective of this article is to reveal the rehabilitation of uniocular phthisis bulbi, a clinical case treated with a scleral cover shell in a male patient whose cause of defect was trauma. Also digital reproduction of the iris is made, instead of painting the iris using acrylic or oil painting.
