Spotlight on John Weiss & Son Wright Globe implants

Harlow, UK – 11th October 2019 - John Weiss & Son, the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard ophthalmic micro-surgical instruments and procedures, is proud to be the UK manufacturer of the Wright Acrylic Globe implant range.

Introduced over 60 years ago, Wright Acrylic Globes are used in micro-surgical procedures of the eye and have become established as THE orbital implant of choice for many surgeons, World-wide.

The Globes are supplied in single units, ready-for-use. This reduces the risk of infection and ensures no packaging, sterilisation or cleaning is required. For convenience, traceability stickers are also included.

Manufactured in 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 18mm, 21mm and 22mm diameters, there is a size to suit every patients’ requirements. The implants are used to replace the volume in the orbit that, prior to surgery, was occupied by the eye. The Globe is either implanted inside the sclera (if evisceration is chosen) or the eye socket (if enucleation is chosen). Either procedure may be used to treat a variety of issues, including; trauma, infection, neoplasm and painful blind eye.

The implant is not visible, but maintains and provides the natural structure of the orbit, supporting the artificial eye. The sphere has machined grooves and a hole through the centre to allow an additional peg to be fitted for suspension of an artificial iris and to aid motility. The porous nature of the acrylic Globes enables fibrovascular ingrowth, increasing mobility and allowing implantation for long-term use, usually for the life of the patient.
