A 54 year-old ex-service man was assaulted 10 years ago and had his left eye enucleated. He was unhappy with his appearance. Examination showed poor surgical results with skin contracture and poor fitting of the prosthesis. Reconstruction was planned with release of the scars, skin graft and insertion of an acrylic ball.


Poor cosmesis from the initial surgical treatment.


Poor wound alignment, wound contraction and absent of an implant.
