1. Enucleation and Evisceration (Frequently Asked Questions)

Enucleation and Evisceration surgery involves the removal of an eye, and can evoke emotions such as fear, anxiety, grief and stress in patients.

2. Posterior vitreous detachment

Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) occurs when the gel that fills the eyeball separates from the retina.
