Prosthetic Eye Lubricants

Silicone lubricant made specifically for artificial eyes. Occasionally, artificial eye wearers will experience dryness, irritation, increased drainage or difficulty blinking. This is especially true of hot, cold, windy, dusty or air-conditioned environments. All of these conditions tend to evaporate the moisture from the front of the prosthesis. Sil-Ophtho will help alleviate these symptoms providing comfort, less drainage and a more natural appearance.

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Medium Viscosity Formulation
  • Long Lasting

Vitamin E based lubricant made specifically for artificial eyes. This product is especially helpful to patients with scar tissue, multiple surgeries, eyelid lacerations and chronic irritation. Occasionally, artificial eye wearers will experience dryness, irritation, increased drainage or difficulty blinking. This is especially true of hot, cold, windy, dusty or air-conditioned environments. These conditions tend to evaporate the moisture from the front of the prosthesis.

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Medium Viscosity Formulation
  • Long Lasting

Silicone lubricant made specifically for artificial eyes. Heavy viscosity is thicker for severe dryness or more extreme conditions. Occasionally, artificial eye wearers will experience dryness, irritation, increased drainage or difficulty blinking. This is especially true of hot, cold, windy, dusty or air-conditioned environments. All of these conditions tend to evaporate the moisture from the front of the prosthesis.

Ocu-Sil™ is a medical grade dimethylpolysiloxane silicone prosthetic eye gel formulated specifically for artificial eyes. Occasionally, artificial eye wearers will experience dryness, irritation, increased drainage or difficulty blinking. This is especially true of hot, cold, windy, dusty or air-conditioned environments. All of these conditions tend to evaporate the moisture from the front of the prosthesis.

Prosthetic Eye Lubricants

The lubricants listed below all work to increase the tear film that coats the surface of your prosthetic eye or scleral shell providing more comfort, easier blinking and a more natural appearance. These lubricants are developed specifically for artificial eyes.

The higher the viscosity, the thicker and longer lasting the lubricant. While this would indicate the highest viscosity lubricant as the best choice, there are a few more factors to consider. The higher viscosity silicone lubricants will boost the outer tear film layer, reducing the evaporation of tears. The soothing drops and lower viscosity lubricants will help boost the aqueous layer of the tear film. In cases where tear production is limited, it may be helpful to use both a lubricant and a soothing drop to replenish the tear film.

Conditions that deplete tear film:

  • Air Conditioning
  • Wind
  • Dry heat
  • Frigid cold
  • Smoke
  • Dust
  • Extended TV Viewing
  • Extended Computer Use
