How do you expand a contracted or smaller-than-normal socket?

When the eye socket is too small to wear a normal custom ocular prosthesis there is an option on how to obtain a more symmetrical look. This is common in microphthalmic and anopthalmic cases. Creating a custom clear conformer and building upon it over time expands the socket to a point where eventually a full custom ocular prosthesis will be fabricated. This process will result in a more symmetrical appearance with maximum comfort. It is ideal to start this process within the first 6 weeks of life.
