Be sure to talk with your doctor about whether the coral implant is good for you, because some people later get infections with them and sometimes they cause problems.

Have a look here for the coral implant. The medical name for coral is hydroxyapatite.

The other popular eye is the Medpor implant - highly regarded at Wilmer Eye Clinic in Baltimore.

Best of luck to you!
