Vous et votre médecin avez parlé des raisons pour lesquelles il est nécessaire d’enlever votre œil ou le contenu du globe oculaire. Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait ou de l’ablation de l’œil est l’énucléation. Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait du contenu du globe oculaire en conservant la couche externe (coque sclérale ou sclère) est éviscération. La présente brochure vous explique ces interventions et précise comment prendre soin de vous sans danger. Avant la chirurgie, votre médecin vous dira quelle intervention est nécessaire dans votre cas. Cela dépendra de vos symptômes ou du type de maladie. Les deux interventions entraînent la perte permanente de l’œil.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Eye Removal" pamphlet 0582. You and your doctor have talked about why your eye or the contents of your eye must be removed. 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. This pamphlet will explain these procedures and help you learn how to safely care for yourself. Before surgery your doctor will tell you which procedure you need. This will depend on your symptoms or type of disease. Both procedures mean permanent loss of the eye.

Abstract
La rétine est une membrane fine et délicate à l’arrière de l’œil. Elle transforme la lumière en images. La macula est la partie centrale et toute petite de la rétine. Elle vous donne la vision centrale nécessaire pour faire des choses comme lire, regarder la télé et voir les visages. Il existe deux formes de dégénérescence maculaire liée à l’âge (DMLA) : la forme sèche et la forme humide. Dans le cas de la dégénérescence maculaire sèche, les changements se produisent lentement, durant des mois ou des années. Il n'y a aucun traitement pour la DMLA de forme sèche. Dans le cas de la forme humide (dite aussi exsudative) de la DMLA, les changements se produisent souvent de façon rapide. Il est possible de traiter cette forme de DMLA. Sujets abordés : causes, traitement, injections, rétablissement après les injections, risques, précautions spéciales à prendre après les injections, certaines choses à faire pour aider votre situation.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet, 0460, "Macular Degeneration". The retina is a very thin delicate tissue at the back of the eye that turns light into images. The macula is the very small central area of your retina. It gives you the central vision needed to do things like reading, watching TV, and seeing faces.There are 2 types of age-related macular degeneration (AMD): ‘dry’ and ‘wet’. With the dry type of macular degeneration, changes happen slowly over months or years. There is no treatment for dry AMD. With the wet (also called ‘exudative’) type of macular degeneration, changes often happen quickly. It is possible to treat wet AMD. Topics include: causes, treatment, injections, recovery after injections, risks, special precautions after injections, as well as some things you can do to help your condition.

In glaucoma, the eye pressure becomes elevated (high) when the normal drainage channels (trabecular meshwork) are blocked and fluid gets trapped. This elevated pressure will eventually damage the delicate optic nerve, which may destroy vision and lead to blindness. SLT is used to help control the pressure inside your eye and treat chronic open angle glaucoma. A laser (bright beam of light) is precisely focused on the drainage channels (trabecular meshwork) to improve the drainage of fluid. The …

A lens implant is put in front of the capsule. In up to half of patients who have had cataract surgery, the capsule also becomes cloudy. When this happens, vision becomes blurred. This cloudiness can be treated with a YAG laser. The YAG laser is used to make an opening in the capsule (capsulotomy), like making a hole in a piece of p…

This cloudiness can be treated with a YAG laser. The YAG laser is used to make an opening in the capsule (capsulotomy), like making a hole in a piece of plastic wrap. Vision is usually clearer 1 to 2 days after the treatment. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, what happens during, and what to expect after.
