Ocular prostheses

Coverage

A medical prescription is necessary for the first ocular prosthesis, but it is not required for its renewal.

The renewal period is 12 months for glass ocular prostheses and 36 months for plastic ocular prostheses.

This renewal period does not apply to children under the age of 14 years when the medical prescription justifies the coverage as a result of their growth.

Furthermore, the period may be reduced on the basis of a justified medical prescription for persons who have undergone a recent enucleation (3 to 6 months) or in case of intercurrent complications.
