The insertion of an implant is an integral part of the enucleation procedure. There are different benefits and risks associated with each type of anophthalmic implant, of which there is no style that is most ideal for every case. Modification of surgical technique may be needed when using certain implants. The results of enucleation can be maximized by individualizing the choice of implant size and material for each patient.
