In recent years, evisceration has overtaken enucleation as the procedure of choice for treating intraocular malignancies and alleviating severe ocular trauma. Concurrent advances in the material and design of orbital implants and a better understanding of orbital volume relationships may help to explain this development. The purpose of this module is to help ophthalmologists understand the many options available to patients requiring enucleation or evisceration.
