After performing 360° peritomy, sub-Tenon’s blunt dissection and excision of the corneal button were done (A). Ocular contents were scooped out (B) and then four scleral petals were created (C). After inserting the ocular implant (D), the sclera was sutured (E). Two layers of scleral suture were provided for additional cover of the implant. Tenon’s capsule and conjunctiva were sutured respectively (F). The conformer was worn over the conjunctiva (G). Temporal tarsorrhaphy was maintained for 2 weeks (H).
