Enucleation is the removal of an organ or other mass from its supporting tissues, as of the eyeball from the orbit. Evisceration is the removal of the eye's contents, leaving the scleral shell and extraocular muscles intact. The procedure is usually performed to reduce pain or improve cosmesis in a blind eye, as in cases of endophthalmitis unresponsive to antibiotics. An ocular prosthetic can be fitted over the eviscerated eye in order to improve cosmesis.
