3D Printing The Realistic Custom Eye Prosthetics

A Team led by Professor Yoon Jin-sook from Severance Hospital, South Korea worked on 3D Printing Custom Eye Prosthetics on a large scale by solving the production cost and time. Following the scan of patient’s eye and conversion of data into STL file, the Eye were 3D Printed using Carima DS131 and Biocompatible Photopolymer Resin (FotoTec DLP.A, Dreve Inc.). To give them much realistic look, the Sublimation Transfer Technique was used to print the image of the iris and blood vessels on the 3D-printed ocular prosthesis.
