Abstract

A 66-year-old man who presented with anophthalmic enophthalmos desired improvement in his appearance without invasive surgery. A nonincisional technique for volume augmentation in the anophthalmic socket with injectable calcium hydroxylapatite was performed. Clinical improvement was determined by comparison of preoperative and 6-month postoperative exophthalmometry values and photographs. Injectable calcium hydroxylapatite successfully increased orbital volume in this anophthalmic patient.
