To discover on sale whether totally patients irritable of dry eye have need of lubricating drops in the direction of correct the difficult of serious or prolonged dryness. Fifty consecutive patients using custom uniocular prosthesis. Patients by custom ocular prosthesis existed managed dry eye indication survey, monitored through socket assessment in addition to Schirmer’s exam. Here we present 31 man plus 19 women using the meantime of life of 23.67 years (collection 18-40 years), with involvement of 56 % right eyes.
