Why Does My Artificial Eye Feel Cold In The Winter?

I was chatting to a client today and he mentioned that his eye gets cold in the winter.

I’ve heard people say this before. The reason is that the artificial eye doesn’t have blood vessels like a normal eye would.

It is the blood flow that keeps a real eye warm.

However it is a fact that some people who wear an artificial eye experience it as being cold in the winter. Is that your experience?
