Porous prostheses composed of hydroxyapatite that allow vascular growth inside the eyeball are available; prostheses that can be attached to endosseous implants in the bony orbit of the missing eye are also available. Eyeball prostheses are used after enucleation or evisceration of the eye due to injuries, diseases, or inborn abnormalities (i.e., an anophthalmic eye).
