Some non-functioning or blind eyes become too painful or disfiguring. Dr. Zoumalan will examine your eye and surrounding socket to determine if you would be a candidate for an enucleation or an evisceration. Both types of surgeries are similar such that the whole eye or most of the structures of the eye are removed in order to allow for the reconstruction of the socket with the placement of an implant. The implant is placed deep within the socket to allow for the volume replenishment of what was once the volume the eye occupied. When the socket has healed and rehabilitated properly (usually several weeks after surgery), the patient will be to able to be fitted for an ocular prosthetic (artificial eye).
“Dr. Zoumalan was recommended by my dermatologist to help fix the lumps under my eyelids after having restylane and juvederm filler injections placed there by some other injector. I was scared at first if he could even offer any help but I immediately felt comfortable and knew I had come to the right place after talking to his staff, Danielle, and then finally meeting him. Dr. Zoumalan was able to remove the lumps and then even refill my under eyelid hollows to get them to exactly what I had wished the first time I had my lids done. There is no scale to grade his work, out of a scale of 10 he is a 20!”
