Prosthesis is an artificial substitute that is implanted into or integrated into a human body part to replace the missing natural organ, for the purpose of restoring a specific function or a group of related functions so that the patient may return to normal life as quickly as possible. An eye for an eye is what the old saying goes. The eye plays a vital role as one of the six senses. From vision to expression, it has varied functions. Loss of this organ severely impacts not only the vision but also self-confidence. A case report is presented where a simple technique is used to provide the subject with eye prosthesis as rapidly as possible.
