ERemoval Q & a
Under what circumstances might eye removal be necessary?
Eye removal is only for situations in which you have eye trauma or eye disease that causes blindness, severe pain, or serious health risks.
At Northeast Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, Dr. Habib examines your individual circumstances in great detail before recommending eye removal. Her goal is always to help you be as healthy as possible, even when you’re dealing with significant eye complications.
Which type of eye removal will I need?
The type of eye removal depends on a few factors, including the disease or trauma that led to the surgery. For example, evisceration, the simplest of the eye removal procedures, isn’t right for everyone. It may be ideal for problems restricted to the eye itself, but if you have more widespread trauma or infection, enucleation may be the right choice.
With eye cancer or severe life-threatening eye infections, Dr. Habib may recommend the most aggressive approach, exenteration, because it removes as much surrounding tissue as possible to reduce the risk of periocular malignancy and give you the best chance of a cure.

My daughter and her dad was running late to her first appointment. I just called the office to let them know that my daughter's father was running late. I was hoping that I didn't have to reschedule the appointment. But the office was nice enough. To just push the appointment time to 2pm instead of 1pm. ThanksShakima Simpson
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The doctor is great. Would suggest more time allocated by schedulers for doctor time etc so that the waiting time is reduced and the doctor has more breathing time.Karen Golden
