Background: On account of loss of eye following Rubella infection, a 13-month-old baby girl patient required a maxillofacial prosthesis to restore her facial esthetics and social health as she grows. Case presentation: The process of prosthesis fabrication began at the time of enucleation where a conformer was given. Post healing the procedure was completed in a span of 2 days taking adequate trials and cross references for the like-like appearance of the prosthesis. Conclusion: A heat-cure acrylic resin based prosthetic eye was delivered with adequate instructions on the insertion and removal and hygiene maintenance given to the care providers.
