We always hear about the artificial eyes, it may not mean much for most of us, but it means a lot for those who suffered from injuries or diseases in one eye and missed not only their vision but also they lost the normal shape and size of their eyes, which exposes them for embarrassment and may lead them to lose their self-confidence.

New techniques found the treatment to solve this problem by designing an eye with same specifications of a natural eye, by taking the normal eye print and designing the same degree of eye whiteness, same degree of the other eye color, especially the brown, black and blue eyes color can be the same degree of the other eye color.
The artificial eye can be used during sleeping or during and any kind of exercising even the heavy ones.

In many cases the installation of the artificial eye may not require a surgical intervention, if the size of the affected eye fits. In other cases it may require a surgical intervention for the preparation of the eye socket for the artificial eye. Moreover, the movement of the artificial eyes usually cannot be noticeable by others. Finally, artificial eyes creates a magical solution for people who really need to interact with the society and live their life normally.
