Abstract

Conformers and symblepharon rings are routinely used to keep fornices formed after socket surgery or in the presence of conjunctival cicatricial disease. However, there is no accepted standard size or shape of conformers or symblepharon rings. We measured the ideal conformer and symblepharon sizes in patients undergoing socket surgery and designed six conformer and symblepharon sizes. The full set of six conformers and symblepharon rings is available to the surgeon at the end of surgery. We have successfully used these conformers and symblepharon rings in over 600 cases during the last 7 years. These standardized sizes allow more accurate fitting of conformers and symblepharon rings.
