Data and Literature

  There has been a resurgence in interest and innovation in the development of orbital implants and artificial eyes since the introduction of the Bio-eye hydroxyapatite orbital implant in 1989. This once rather slow area of ophthalmic surgery is now bustling with new studies and reports about both the short- and long-term results using the new "sea coral" (natural hydroxyapatite) orbital implant. Here, the editors of Movements On-Line have tried to collect the most complete information ever compiled on these topics. Each of the following areas contains different information, so feel free to browse!
