Contracted sockets with poor retention of ocular prosthesis are difficult to manage especially when it is a dry socket. A 50-year-old lady with history of irradiation to the socket following enucleation for retinoblastoma reported to us with severe socket contracture, dry socket, and inadequate lid closure with a poorly retained ocular prosthesis. She was using a stone in the socket for support with a cracked stock ocular prosthesis placed over it. A two-piece ocular prosthesis was created with a base and shell with neodymium-boron-ferrous magnets in each part, with good retention and positioning, and this was cosmetically acceptable to the patient. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of such a two-piece magnetic ocular prosthesis.
