Abstract

A 29-years-old Turkish man who had undergone evisceration with primary orbital implantation 20 months prior complained of difficulty wearing his artificial eye. Slit-lamp examination revealed a conjunctival cyst in the center of the anophthalmic socket, with no evidence of scleral or orbital implant exposure. The cyst was completely excised under general anesthesia and did not require use of any sclerosing substance or dye. At 6 months postoperatively, there was no recurrence of the cyst or exposure of the sclera or orbital implant. As the upper and lower fornices were sufficiently deep, the patient could wear his artificial eye.
