    Response to e-letter to the editor

    We thank Dr. Mourits and co-workers for their interest and comments regarding our manuscript on impression-free three-dimensional (3D) printed anophthalmic socket, and appreciate their recognition of its value in the manufacturing of an ocular prosthesis.(1)

    Dr. Mourits and co-workers propose an alternative technique, impression mould through silicon injection in the a...

    With interest we have read the article of Ruiters et al.1 in which they present a 3 dimensional method for ocular prosthesis manufacturing. In our practice we also manufacture individual customized ocular prosthesis using 3D techniques. We confirm that this computer aided method improves prosthetic fitting and may aid the production process when translated into 3D prints. Our method does however differ on several points....
