The use of hydroxyapatite as an ocular implant is a new procedure. This paper demonstrates the surgical experience and clinical results in nine patients after enucleation and evisceration. The results are great. None of them presented infection or extrusion of their implantes and all of them presented great motility and aesthetical appearance.
