pre e post protesi oculare

In severe ocular trauma and in case of orbital and ocular malignant tumors eye surgical removal may be required. The surgical techniques used are evisceration, enucleation, and exenteration.

EVISCERATION

Evisceration is the surgical removal of the contents of the eyeball using local anesthesia. It is used in the event of severe ocular trauma, infection (endophthalmitis) and for blind and sore eyes. The eye is replaced by an orbital implant, so as to reconstitute the orbital volume.
After 4-6 weeks a cosmetics prosthetic is inserted into the eye: a personalized device that, like a large contact lens that mimics the features of the contralateral eye, are placed in front of the orbital implant about 4-6 weeks after surgery.
Before this period is added a transparent plastic former. The ultimately artificial cosmetics eye has the task of supporting the eyelids in the right position, to imitate the healthy contralateral eye (in the features and in the movement).

ENUCLEATION

Enucleation is the surgical removal of the entire eyeball using general or local anesthesia. It is used in the event of severe ocular trauma, of orbital and ocular malignant tumors and for blind and sore eyes. The eye is replaced by an orbital implant, so as to reconstitute the orbital volume. After 4-6 weeks a cosmetics prosthetic is inserted into the eye: a personalized device that, like a large contact lens that mimics the features of the contralateral eye, are placed in front of the orbital implant about 4-6 weeks after surgery.
Before this period is added a transparent plastic former. The ultimately artificial cosmetics eye has the task of supporting the eyelids in the right position, to imitate the healthy contralateral eye (in the features and in the movement).

EXENTERATIO

The exenteration is the surgical removal of the entire orbital contents (the eyeball, the fat and muscles that control movement) and, as appropriate, of the eyelids, using general anesthesia.It is necessary in the case of orbital and ocular malignant tumors. The orbital cavity is left empty and so the aesthetic rehabilitation takes place through the manufacture of personalized facial epi-prosthetic ? that can be applied to glasses or directly to the orbit (glue, magnets).
