Abstract: PURPOSE: Implant motility and cosmetic appearance of the eye after enucleation have remained major considerations whenever mycoconjunctival enucleation is planned. Despite major advances in surgical technique and the availability of a variety of implant materials and shapes, there is lack of consensus on the best material and type of implant. This study was conducted to compare routine and myoconjunctival techniques of enucleation in terms of motility index. METHODS: Thirty consecutive patients scheduled for enucleation for non-malignant indications were randomly assigned to one of the two groups- routine and myoconjunctival techniques. The postoperative results were compared for the motility of implant and the complications. RESULTS: The two techniques showed no difference in rates of complications, but implant motility was significantly better with the myoconjunctival technique. Implant extrusion or migration was not seen. CONCLUSION: We recommend the use of myoconjunctival enucleation for enhanced motility and cosmesis.
