“I’ve had eye surgery since I was 20. I always feel insecure about it.” he said For BBC Steve Wars, he is now 40 years old.
As a result, this invention does not allow only the most realistic prostheses Patients should be cut in half to fit the prosthesis, Going from six to three weeks.
“When I leave the house, I tend to look in the mirror, I do not like what I see,” Vers lamented. “These new eyes look fantastic and will continue to look great as they are made with 3D printing technology.”
The traditional technique for preparing an eye prosthesis involves subjecting the patient to a two-hour session during which the eye cavity is molded. After that, the production of prosthesis is three weeks. At the end of the process, the fake eye is fitted and painted in a color similar to the real eye.
According to Moorfields Eye Hospital, 3D technology should allow the prosthesis to build quickly, taking about two weeks.
“We hope the clinical trial will provide us with strong evidence of the value of this technology, demonstrating how it can change patients’ lives,” Professor Mandeep Saku, an ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye, told the BBC.
To the expert, the new technique, “clearly, Ability to reduce waiting lists”.
The use of 3D printers is not new in trying to create artificial limbs for parts of the human body. Earlier this year, scientists at Swansea University in Wales attempted to print a three-dimensional human cartilage transplant to give a ten-year-old girl a false ear.
