A scleral cover shell is a prosthetic alternative that permits us to treat a number of cases in which surgery that mutilates the eye can be avoided.
This kind of prosthesis is often placed on non-functional, damaged, strabic or shrunken eye sockets (phthisis bulbi) in the wake of wounds, concussions or diseases.
If the cornea is judged to be too sensitive, or when daily care is too difficult for the patient to carry out, the surgeon can choose to fabricate a conjunctival envelope.

Whenever the situation allows, scleral cover shells are an excellent alternative to surgery that mutilates the eye, and they provide improved comfort.
