Dr. Laquis specializes in treating the many conditions that concern the eyes including orbital tumors, trauma and congenital problems. The orbit is the bony socket around the eye that is the main defense against protecting the eye from trauma, though in some cases of orbital trauma, surgical removal of the eye may be necessary.

The loss of an eye may be performed to alleviate a severe infection in the eye, to improve the aesthetic value of a disfigured eye, to control pain in a blind eye, or due to a severe trauma. There are two key words here to know when speaking about any surgical removal of an eye: Enucleation and Evisceration. 

“Enucleation” means the surgical removal of the entire eye, while “evisceration” means the surgical removal of the contents inside the eye. In either case, an artificial eye may be create by an ocularist to replace the eye.
