MEDPOR® Biomaterial

MEDPOR® is comprised of a lightweight, porous form of high-density polyethylene, a material with a long history of medical applications. Its unique, highly porous texture allows vessels to incorporate into the enhancement shape, integrating MEDPOR® into a patient's tissues. The shape and size can be customized by your surgeon to fit your individual needs. MEDPOR® eliminates the need for grafts or silicone implants.

MEDPOR® Orbital Spheres

Spheres for Enucleation and Evisceration

Surgeons might select from sphere implant diameters of 14 mm to 22 mm. A resterilizable sizer set is available for selecting the appropriate implant diameter at the time of surgery.

COI ®Implants

The Conical Orbital Implant (COI) ® was designed and developed to address several of the common problems associated with the correction of the anophthalmic socket. The COI® design provides removal of the anterior surface of the channels in the medial, lateral and inferior quadrants.
