Painful Blind Unsightly Eye

Painful Blind Unsightly Eye

Patients who develop a blind painful unsightly eye for a variety of reasons and whose pain is not controlled with medical treatments e.g. Atropine drops, usually require the removal of the eye (by means of an enucleation or an evisceration of the eye) with placement of an orbital implant. Go to Enucleation/Evisceration/Orbital Implant Surgery on this website for more information.

Patients who have a blind unsightly but non-painful eye often benefit from the use of a cosmetic contact lens or a cosmetic shell. Our specialist optometrist Becky (Mrs Rebecca Rietdyke) can provide bespoke cosmetic contact lens fitting. If a cosmetic shell is required for an eye that is shrunken (“phthisical”) we will refer you to our specialist ocularist colleagues, Mr Chris Brammar and Mrs Susie Walker.
