The Bio-eye Hydroxyapatite Orbital Implant

This unique, patented implant was first cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989. In addition to natural eye movement, the Bio-eye orbital implant offers many less-obvious benefits. It reduces implant migration and extrusion, which were common with the first-generation implants, and it can prevent drooping of the lower lid (Fig. 5) by lending support to the artificial eye via a peg connection. These are important benefits that can eliminate the need to choose between further corrective surgery and an unsatisfactory appearance.

The benefits of natural movement and fewer long-term problems have made the Bio-eye orbital implant the implant of choice among leading oculoplastic surgeons worldwide.
