Gold Eyelid Weight Implants
Employed in the surgical treatment of lagophthalmos, SutureGroove Gold Eyelid
Weights represent the newest generation in gold eyelid weight technology.
OKTO Ophtho has licensed a patented technology that incorporates
recessed suture channels within traditional gold eyelid weight technology
to perfect implant fixation and improve lid cosmesis.
Features and Benefits
Innovation and Design The depth of the SutureGroove™ channel
approximates the diameter of a regular 6.0 suture (400 microns). Extending
from the suture hole to the edge of the implant, this smooth channel
embeds the suture, achieving a stable, virtually immovable position.
Expanded Surgical Options
SutureGroove Slim™ are 25% narrower than the traditional
design, providing a more-contoured, less conspicuous appearance within
Enhanced Cosmesis and Patient Satisfaction
By eliminating the elevated suture lines, you also provide your patient
with a smooth, acceptable eyelid appearance post-operatively.
All SutureGroove™ gold implants are forged from pure gold, ensuring
a precise, smooth, residual-free gold weight for every surgery.
