Product Information

In case of peripheral facial palsy (lagophthalmos), the purpose of the implant is to regain best possible eyelid closure and to avoid drying out the corneal epithelium.

The edges of the implant are extremely thin and rounded, thus offering good cosmetic results.

Platinum-Iridium has in comparison to other materials a higher specific weight which allows the design of an implant with a smaller volume. This in turn reduces the contouring of the upper eyelid, providing good cosmetic results. Furthermore, Platinum-Iridium has excellent biocompatibility.

The choice of the well-working implant weight is made pre-operatively by the surgeon by temporarily securing a stainless steel test weight (REF 8000 111) to the upper eyelid.


  • Regain best possible eyelid closure
  • Improves corneal protection
  • Good cosmetic results
