2. Young girl with an extruding silicone implant. Hornblass's survey of over 5000 implant cases revealed an extrusion rate of 9 to 42% for silicone- and PMMA-type implants.

3. Silicone implant that has migrated superiorly and temporally. Hornblass's survey of over 5000 implant cases discovered a migration rate of 16 to 61% for silicone- or PMMA-type implants.

7. Patient demonstrating poor motility in superior gaze. Hornblass's survey of over 5000 implant cases discovered a poor-motility rate of about 50% for silicone- and PMMA-type implants.

8. Normal appearance of a socket following closure of the conjuctiva. The
socket should look similar to that with a silicone or mehthyl-methacrylate
spherical implant after closure of the conjuctiva. The purple dot on the
patient's conjuctiva is placed to show the extreme movement possible
with the Bio-eye orbital implant.

10. Same patient demonstrating poor motility in medial gaze. Hornblass's survey of over 5000 implant cases discovered a poor-motility rate of about 50% for silicone- and PMMA-type implants.
