The eye plays a vital role as one of the six senses in humans. From vision to expression, it has its various functions. The aim of this study was to suggest a technique using soft denture lining material to improve the retention of an ocular prosthesis in a grossly resorbed orbital cavity to minimizes the trauma of thin, atrophic tissue. An ocular prosthesis restores lost anatomical structures and corrects the cosmetic defect. A custom-made ocular prosthesis is a good alternative as soft denture lining material used during the fabrication of scleral part of ocular prosthesis improves patient comfort by acting as a shock absorber and stress distributor, and yields longer duration of wear. A good alternative of a custom-made ocular acrylic prosthesis is presented here, which had acceptable fit, retention, and esthetics. Fabrication of new ocular prosthesis with permanent soft liner is a novel way to minimize trauma to underlying supporting tissues.
