Abstract Ocular hypotony secondary to proliferative vitreoretinopathy-related retinal detachment, trauma or inflammation is difficult to treat. Besides endotamponades such as silicone oil, vitreous implants such as iris diaphragms or balloons have been developed to stabilize the eye and to prevent phthisis of the globe. Vitreous implants tested thus far exhibit a seam at the attachment site of the hemispheres, or micropores. This manuscript reports the development of a seamless silicone balloon implant without micropores, which can be filled with silicone oil and surface-modified to improve its biocompatibility. Developed for intraocular placement in the management of chronic hypotony and phthisis prevention, it may also be suitable for tamponading retinal detachments.
