Jill, I just read your post, and I, too am considering having another implant surgery. I was wondering if you had received any responses to your question. Strangely, I am also in Indianapolis. I lost my eye at the age of ten and had an orbital implanted, I believe it was a silicon implant. As I have gotten older, the movement of my eye has decreased and I have an increase in headaches. The ocularist indicated that there is some migration of the orbital. I am concerned about the risks with the hydroxapatite implant but do not want to see a second silicone implant shift? I was just wondering if your son has undergone the procedure and what the outcome was? Thank you!
My son is 10 and has a silicone implant. His is drifting and has to have another surgery. I have been reading about the Bio-eye Hydroxyapatite Orbital Implant. It sounds great, but the surgeon says that there are more complications with it compared to the silicone. My son is due for surgery June 1st and I am having doubts about everything. Does anybody have personal experience with it? Does anybody know where I should look to for advice?
