Enucleation What is an enucleation? Enucleation is the term for the surgical removal of an eye. Such a procedure is performed as a last resort and can follow certain diseases or severe injury to an eye. Diseases that can necessitate enucleation include ocular tumors such as retinoblastoma, and end-stage glaucoma. Also, when an eye is injured beyond repair and has little to no chance of seeing again, an enucleation is performed. What is an ocular prosthesis?
Are you wearing a prosthetic eye that hasn't looked or felt right in years? Chances are you could be wearing a "stock" prosthetic eye. These mass produced prostheses are not recommended for any patient and should be replaced immediately with a custom-made prosthetic eye. A custom-made ocular prosthesis takes into account the comfort, mobility and cosmetic details unique to each person.
