Eye removal surgery is an effective way to alleviate the persistent pain that may be associated with a blind eye.

Philadelphia eye removal surgeon, Kenneth E. Morgenstern can perform eye removal surgery due to chronic pain, or in cases of infection, tumor or for cosmetic reasons. Dr. Morgenstern is a skilled oculoplastic surgeon practicing reconstructive facial surgery in the Philadelphia area.

Following the surgery, headaches are a common occurrence which may last up to three days. You will have a pressure bandage over your eye which should only be removed after the recommended time—typically 5 days. Patients are asked to use a topical antibiotic to prevent infection for the first few weeks.

Eye removal is often performed when other options have been exhausted. Eye removal surgery may be performed on an outpatient basis or it may require brief hospitalization. The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia.

Removal of an eye may be performed for any of the following reasons:

  • Chronic and persistent pain due to increased pressure or inflammation in a blind eye
  • Traumatic injury to the eye where the eye cannot be preserved.
  • Severe infection that poses a risk to adjoining tissues
  • Tumor removal and prevention of spreading cancer such as in cases of intraocular eye melanoma or retinoblastoma
  • Cosmetically unacceptable blind eye that interferes with physical or social considerations
