An ocular implant was an artificial medical device which was used to replace or augment a damaged or missing eye.

By the 2360s, ocular implants were a common medical prosthesis in the United Federation. In 2365, Doctor Katherine Pulaski offered the procedure to Geordi La Forge, but he refused on the grounds that the technology was not yet advanced enough to afford the same visual range as his VISOR. (TNG episode: "Loud as a Whisper")

By 2373, La Forge had decided to undergo the procedure and received a pair of ocular implants. The implants were similar in appearance to a normal humanoid eye, with mechanized detailing on the irises and pupils. (TNG movie: Star Trek: First Contact)

In 2373, Klingon General Martok refused Julian Bashir's offer of receiving an ocular implant to replace the eye he lost while imprisoned by the Jem'Hadar. (DS9 episode: "Soldiers of the Empire")

The Borg often augmented their drones with ocular implants, among others. (TNG episode: "Q Who?" et al.)
