Artificial Eyes (Enucleation/Evisceration)
Losing an eye as a result of an infection or injury is a very difficult and traumatic experience. For patients suffering from blind, painful eyes or a cancer in the eye that cannot be treated, we offer the option of replacing the eye with an implant. This is done using a procedure called enucleation or evisceration. With medical advancements, prosthetic eyes look very realistic and are often hard for others to detect.
After having surgery, we work with local ocularists who help create a custom implant which matches the patient’s other eye. Most patients often say they have less pain and are more comfortable with their appearance following surgery.
