I sustained an eye injury May 2010, and was fitted for a prosthetic August 2010. The Ocularist who made my prosthetic eye had some difficulty getting the colour right, but we're both pleased with the final version. It's removable and rather thin, as far as new eyes go. Thinness allows the eye to have a little movement - thicker prosthetics are too heavy to get decent movement.

It's made of acrylic and it's expensive. Unfortunately, it also has a shelf life. Probably between 3-7 years.
