Many surgeons encounter difficulty transecting the optic nerve during the enucleation procedure. An inadequate specimen may be obtained or the surrounding orbital tissue may be traumatized. A matching set of enucleation instruments have been developed to improve the visualization and division of the optic nerve while protecting the nearby orbital structures. The new enucleation instruments have been employed in 130 consecutive enucleation procedures. There have been no complications associated with these instruments. These instruments have facilitated the visualization and transection of the optic nerve during the enucleation procedure.
