Oculofacial plastic surgeons at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, part of the University of Miami Health System, offer various eye removal surgery options to relieve eye pain and minimize life-threatening risks. Our experts take your eye health seriously and carefully consider each individual’s needs. We only recommend eye removal when our patients face excruciating conditions that can be hazardous to their overall health.
The types of surgical eye removal we offer are:
- Evisceration: removal of the eye contents, leaving the muscles and sclera (white part of the eye) in place
- Enucleation: removal of the entire eyeball where the muscles are detached and reattached to an implant
- Exenteration: removal of the eye and other adjacent structures, such as the fat and eye muscles
