Ask an eye Doctor and get an answer ASAP
Thank you for the question. I am Dr.Desai,certified ophthalmologist and I look forward to assisting you with this querry.
Sorry to know about your suffering following the enucleation. Exposure of implant is not so common but can occur for whatever reason, which needs to be surgically corrected. Re-suturing alone is done in such a case. Your ophthalmologist has also done the same but with re-exposure again. This time he may want to use additional graft tissue so as to prevent re-exposure again and again. Graft can be taken from various sites which includes, oral mucosa, myoperiosteal graft and so on. I hope this answers your querry. Let me know if there is anything else you may want to ask in this regard .
Thank you and best wishes
