Conformers are used after enucleation to conform to the conjunctival sac fornices. They should adhere closely to the socket contour and fill the depths of the fornices without stretching them. Easy closure of the eyelids after the conformer is slipped into place usually indicates proper fit. Most of the conformers have one, three and five drainage holes to allow mucoid discharge to escape and to facilitate the insertion of postoperative medication.
Uses of Conformers are as follows:
Conformers are used in patients with chemotic prolapsing conjunctiva. They are used for prevention of the cul-de-sacs following chemical burns or traumatic avulsion of the conjunctiva. Conformers are also used after insertion of certain implants with a pressure dressing to lessen edema.
