In brief: Eye removal surgery

Removal of an eye is for extreme trauma, advanced disease with pain and loss of all vision, or suspicion of tumor. Surgery is done while asleep, and post-op the patched eye heals within a month with little discomfort.
When healed you will be fitted with an artificial eye to match the normal.
