To these I offer the acorn implant (Figs. 1 and 2) described here, which has a number of advantages, namely, simplicity of design and operational procedure, safety, permanency, improved motility, and final cosmetic suitability. This acorn-shaped implant adapts itself to the shape of the muscle cone, retaining more or less normal anatomical relationships in the orbit.
