Prosthetic rehabilitation of the Anophthalmic and Microphthalmic socket in children
Camille Loyer, Australia
This talk will present Camille’s experience in using serially enlarged prostheses to manage the Anophthalmic and Microphthalmic socket through several case studies, highlighting changes in her approach based on both her successes and the challenges Camille has faced.
Camille will discuss the order in which she develops different parts of the Anophthalmic socket, with emphasis on the techniques used to develop the fornices and palpebral fissure, including reference to their experiences of the use of surgical implants.
Camille will also speak about the requirements of the parents, an important factor in achieving the optimal outcome for each child.
Camille welcomes audience members to share challenging cases for discussion, as she values the benefits that a collaborative approach brings to helping patients around the world.
