Small eyelid implants. (Product Marketplace).

MedDev Corporation, a provider of eyelid closure devices for the surgical treatment of paralytic lagophthalmos, now offers ThinProfile[TM] Platinum Eyelid Weight Implants. These new pure platinum implants offer higher density (11 % compared to gold) and reduced thickness (400/0 compared to our popular Contour[TM] design), to create the smallest eyelid implant available.

MedDev's ThinProfile Platinum Implants are 0.6 mm thick and feature a three-dimensional curvature that conforms precisely to the shape of the ocular globe. Tapered edges and rounded corners are blended uniformly to ensure tissue compatibility. Smoothly chamfered and channel-free suture holes permit greater flexibility in implant fixation. Microscopic inspection assures flawless interior walls with no sharp edges.
