To remove the eye, you start by pressing down on the lower iGenics Review lid so the lower part of the eye slides out and down. Make sure that you ask your ocularist for a special cup to place the eye while cleaning. Doctors will also provide a suction cup of sorts and you place the cup on the eye. It will help remove the prosthetic eye.Will The Eye Have To Be Refit?It is recommended that the prosthetics be refit every 3 to 5 years. In children it is recommended that they be refitted sooner.Will I Be Able to Drive? It is possible; it may depend on the vision that you have in the remaining eye. It may take some time to get used to driving again. You may have to practice before driving in public. You will have to be more conscious of driving like keeping a bit further back from the car in front of you. Parking may become an issue. Talk to your eye doctor first before driving. You may have to talk to the local DMV for a new license. Will My Eye Itch? They actually can itch. The most common reasons are that they will itch as the healing process continues and as protein build up happens it may cause the eye to itch. This build up causes a thin coating which can cause an allergic reaction underneath the eyelid. If this happens call your ocularist and ask for suggestions. These are just some of the questions that you may have or maybe some that you have not thought of. Make yourself a list of questions and do not be embarrassed to ask any question that you may have. Another idea is to have someone go with you to your appointments as you may need some moral support when first getting fitted for your prosthetic eye.
