Instruments for enucleation / evisceration
(The following instruments are designed specifically for enucleation/evisceration.
Additional instruments such as forceps, muscle hooks and blades are not included here)

Curved scissors used to free the globe from the orbit. The curve of the scissors 
allows easy insertion around the globe to cut the connective tissue and the optic nerve.


Enucleation snare. The wire is looped over the globe and slipped down into the optic nerve before enucleation. The loop is tightened by turning the wing nut.
