The craftsmanship and level of detail that goes into making a prosthetic eye is truly impressive, and Mandi Bundren published a gallery on Bored Panda documenting the two-day process that went into creating her husband’s brand new peeper. Her husband, Rich, had his right eye removed after developing Diabetic Retinopathy, which made it too painful to keep. Luckily, thanks to a talented ocularist, Rich has a brand new acrylic eye that is so realistic, you can’t even tell which one is fake. Here’s a behind-the-scenes, step-by-step look at how they did it. We’ll let Mandi take it from here.
