The eyes are the centre of attention during interaction with fellow mankind and therefore any change in the eyes has a profound effect on both the beholder and the person affected by disease.
Although coping strategies are often developed by the affected person to limit the embarrassment, many people will seek to address the change in ocular appearance by surgical means.
During this lecture some of the diseases that cause a change in appearance with outward displacement of the eyes, or loss of an eye, will be presented and a taste of the vast spectrum of various treatments available will be outlined.
