Loss of eye can occur due to any congenital defect, developmental agenesis, infection, traumatic exposure or tumour, resulting in significant physical, psychological, and emotional problems. Rehabilitation of such patients is both emotionally and prosthetically a really phenomenal task. The patient reported with the chief complaint of a missing left eye along with missing multiple teeth following the surgical treatment. Medical history revealed COVID-19-associated mucormycosis, following which exenteration of the left eye along with the segmental maxillectomy was carried out. Patient opted for prosthetic rehabilitation due to the invasiveness of any implant or surgical procedure. This presentation describes the prosthetic rehabilitation of an orbital defect with an assembly of intraoral and extra-oral prosthesis coupled with using intraoral magnets. The poster presentation aims to highlight the fabrication of a hollow orbital conformer to retain the orbital prosthesis with the purpose of reducing its weight. Iris positioning has been performed using a printed millimetre graph grid attached to the spectacles for better orientation in contrast to the contralateral eye. For a life-like appearance of the extra oral prosthesis, instead of artificial hair attachment, utilisation of patient’s own natural hair for weaving of eyebrows and eyelashes was carried out. Satisfactory functional and aesthetic outcomes were achieved leading to gain in confidence of the patient to face the everyday social dilemmas.
