Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait du contenu du globe oculaire en conservant la couche externe (coque sclérale ou sclère) est éviscération. Les deux interventions entraînent la perte permanente de l’œil. Ce dépliant explique ce qui se passe avant et après la chirurgie, le port d’une chemise d’hôpital, les médicaments, les soins à la maison ainsi que vos émotions. Vous y trouverez de plus des informations sur les prothèses oculaires (œil artificiel) ainsi qu’une liste des symptômes nécessitant une consultation médicale immédiate.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Eye Removal" pamphlet 0582. Your health care provider has talked with you about why your eye or the contents of your eye must be removed. This pamphlet will help you learn how to safely care for yourself after your procedure. The medical term for eye removal is enucleation. The medical term for removing the contents of the eye and leaving the outer coat (sclera) behind is evisceration. Both procedures mean permanent loss of the eye. This pamphlet explains what will happen before and after your surgery, including wearing a dressing, medication, care at home, and emotions you may have. Information about having a prosthesis (artificial eye) is given. A list of symptoms that require immediate medical attention is provided.
