A 29 year-old sustained a rupture right globe
in a motor bike accident 2 years ago and despite repair, the globe became
severely phthisical with a significant loss of orbital volume. Despite an
ocular prosthesis, the right eye appears enophthalmos. She wishes to improve
her appearance. Surgery to increase the orbital volume is planned by
performing an enucleation and simultaneous orbital implant. The prosthesis
also needs to be changed to complement the iris colour of the good eye.
Right enophthalmos due to loss of
orbital volume. The colour of the ocular prosthesis also
appears lighter than the normal left
Loss of right orbital volume as a
result of right phthisical globe.
