When an eye is removed, an intraocular implant is placed, replacing part of the socket area (bone cavity) that the eye occupies. This spherical implant maintains the natural structure of the socket and provides support to the artificial eye. The implant itself, however, is not visible. Afterwards, the artificial eye is used to restore the natural appearance of the eye and the surrounding tissue and is the visible part of the surgical changes of the socket.
