Eye removal surgery may be necessary if you have a painful blind eye, cancer, a severe injury, or an infection. When it comes to eye removal surgery, there are two ways that it can be done. Our Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Parsa will determine which of the following option is best for you.

Option 1: Enucleation Surgery
During enucleation surgery, the entire eyeball is removed and replaced with an implant (artificial eye). The muscles that control eye movement are left intact and are sewn to the prosthesis, making capable of moving naturally.

Option 2: Evisceration
With evisceration surgery, the cornea and the contents of the eye are removed but the white part of the eye and the muscles are left intact. This procedure will also provide you with an implant to replace the scleral shell of the eye and it will be connected to the muscles to provide a full range of motion.

Enucleation vs. Evisceration Surgery

Evisceration takes less time and isn’t as invasive as enucleation, but not everyone will be a candidate for enucleation. With cancer, tumors, injury, and infection of the eye, enucleation is the recommended way to go.

Either procedure can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with mild sedation.

Eye Implants

Your artificial eye will be custom made to match the exact color, shape, and texture of your other eye. When the implant is made by a true professional it will look so natural that no one will be able to tell it’s artificial. The prosthesis takes 4 to 6 weeks to make and you’ll receive it after surgery.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
