Purpose: To describe a surgical technique for evisceration that allows the use of large size implants, reducing risk of exposure. Material and Methods: We analize the results of 22 eviscerations with Medpor implants with double scleral covering. Results: We managed to use implants of 20 and 22 mm, sometimes in very small anophthalmic cavities, without complications. Conclusions: Double scleral covering evisceration is a surgical technique that allows the use of large size implants, reducing the risk of exposure.
