What is it?

Exenteration is a surgical procedure consisting of removing the orbital contents (either partially or fully) depending on the location of the intraocular and eyelid tumour.

In which cases is it carried out?

  • Orbital tumours
  • Eyelid tumours

Previous examinations

  • A full ophthalmological examination and eyelid and periocular examination
  • Examination of the fundus of the eye
  • Photos are taken to assess the patient’s condition before and after treatme
  • In addition, extension study of the tumour is conducted

During the surgical operation

  • This treatment is carried out in the operating theatre of the out-patient’s unitia
  • During the operation, the surgeon removes the patient’s periocular and orbital contents

After the operation

  • The surgeon occludes the patient’s eye for 24 hours and the patient must also take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Ice must be applied to the treated area during the first few weeks
  • It is also important to have enough rest for the first few days and avoid picking up heavy objects and taking exercise
  • About one month after surgery, the surgeon decides whether the eye has properly healed. At that time, a prosthetic doctor may adapt an external prosthesis so that the enucleated eye has a similar appearance to a healthy eye
