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.
