Eyeball removal

Enucleation or evisceration is the surgical removal of the eyeball, which is performed under general anesthesia. The object of enucleation is to remove the eye when it contains an evolving malignant lesion (eye melanoma for example) that cannot be preserved otherwise; in rare cases, it may also be prescribed for a traumatized eye endangering the contralateral, healthy eye, through spared eye injury. The eyeball is in all cases replaced by an implant, i.e. a prosthetic eye.


Life with a prosthetic eye

Patients can resume their daily activities within a week and there is no limit to doing sports. After the prosthesis installation, there will be specific eye care instructions that will be instructed to the patient by the ocularist or the ophthalmologist.
