Enucleation of the eye in Turkey, Prices of Istanbul Clinics

Enucleation is the enucleation of the eye while leaving the eye muscles and remaining orbital contents intact.

The eye is removed due to a number of eye tumors, including in eyes that have suffered trauma or severe blow, and in eyes that have lost the ability to see, causing pain. This is because eye excision is usually performed under local anesthesia. This anesthesia around the eyes is similar to the anesthesia performed in dentistry. A strong anesthetic will be given into a vein so that the patient does not feel anything. Also, local anesthesia will be injected behind the eye, its effects usually last about 12 hours. After local anesthesia, the level of intravenous sedation will be reduced. However, it will be maintained to reduce the patient's anxiety during the surgery.

The surgeon measures the dimensions of the eyeball, the length of the optic nerve, and the horizontal dimensions of the cornea, so he draws the eyeball before opening it. A dissecting microscope will be worn in order to detect the main features and possible tiny lesions. Therefore, the eye opens with a sharp blade, holding the eyeball with the left hand.

The eye removal operation is performed as a back-to-front diffusion motion, and the surface of the incision begins on the side adjacent to the optic nerve and ends at the end of the cornea. The area of ??the incision depends on the detection of a lesion. Otherwise, the ball will be cut along a horizontal plane.

Causes of enucleation of the eye

Eye enucleation is done for the purpose of removing large eye tumors or following an injury after severe trauma or also a blow if the eye cannot be saved. In the case of tumors, the amount of radiation needed to clear them from the eye is too intense. Indeed, the eye is a very fragile organ, that it cannot withstand the amount of radiation used. Thus, many patients treated with radiation therapy may lose their vision after a few months or even years, and eventually, they end up having an operation to remove their eyes.

Types of tumors 

There are two types of tumors that require eye removal:

  • Eye melanoma

 It is a rare type of cancer in which melanocyte cells in the eye are affected. In fact, when melanocytes become cancerous, the cancer is called melanoma. If the tumor reaches the iris and begins to grow, or if symptoms appear, the eye should be removed.

  • Retinoblastoma

Retinoblastoma is a malignant tumor that affects the retina. It is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye. Where the retina captures light and forms images. If cancer occurs in one eye, treatment may be eye removal by removing large tumors when there is no hope that vision can be preserved. Once cancer is detected in both eyes, treatment will be to remove the eye with the larger tumor, and radiation therapy will be considered for the other eye.

Complications of eye removal surgery

Eye removal surgery is surgery that takes place under good conditions. Patients rarely present with major complications:

• bleeding

•  An infection

• Scars

• Constant swelling and pain

• Wound separation, or the need for additional surgery

Complications can also occur during eye transplantation in patients who have had their eyes removed. Among these risks have signals the risk of infection.

Over the course of two to six weeks, patients wear a temporary ocular prosthesis (plastic eye). Once the swelling and darkness around the eye subside. The patient appears with natural vision and after putting on the prosthesis, he feels satisfied with the external appearance.
