The patient discussed earlier was advised to return for prosthesis fitting but defaulted. Below was another patient who underwent exenteration 2 years earlier. He also suffered from conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma and was treated with radiotherapy on the recommendation of another ophthalmologist. However, the tumour continued to spread and CT scans showed invasion of the orbital content including the extraocular muscles and optic nerve. He was referred to the oculoplastic clinic for further management and a decision was made for exenteration. He was fitted with a reasonable prosthesis at 18 months with the help of the dental department.
