PMID: 16752623

Purpose: This study aimed to assess the dimensional alterations in the anterior region of the orbit after enucleation or evisceration. Materials and Methods: Analysis of orbital areas and perimeters of 17 patients with unilateral removal of the ocular bulb was performed, and posteroanterior radiographic examination was carried out by a single specialist, who had been previously calibrated. Results: Data obtained from measurements confirmed the clinically observed facial asymmetry. Conclusion: The observation of asymmetry in the anterior orbital area, confirmed by our results, indicates early treatment to prevent orbital disturbances and will aid in the planning of prosthetic rehabilitation.
