Anophthalmos is the absence of the globe and ocular tissues from the orbit. It can be congenital or acquired which is produced by destructive procedures like enucleation and evisceration. It affects the cosmetic appearance of the patient and can be particularly devastating psychologically. The anophthalmic socket has been associated with many complications such as discharge, entropion, ectropion, exposure or extrusion of the orbital implant, infection, migration of the orbital implant, contracted socket and ptosis. This article emphasises on the management of an anophthalmic socket and its complications such as a contracted socket in grownups.

Keywords Anophthalmic socket, Buccal mucosa, Contracted socket, Dermis fat graft, Implants.
