Ophthalmic Conformers

Definition : Temporary convex shields worn under the eyelids over the surgical site after eye evisceration or enucleation. These devices maintain space in the orbital cavity, prevent closure or adhesions during the healing process, prevent inversion of the eyelids, or in some cases, enable the positioning of biological tissue to the ocular surface without the need for sutures. Ophthalmic conformers are usually made of sturdy acrylic (e.g., polymethylmethacrylate) or glass; some may use biological material inserts in the conformers (e.g., amniotic membranes) as therapy for various eye diseases. Ophthalmic conformers come in various sizes (usually small [pediatric], medium, and large) and various curvatures to fit different size orbital cavities; some may have holes in them for drainage of secretions and applying antibiotics.
