The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing to classify the eyelid weight into class II (special controls). The eyelid weight may be adhered to the outer skin of the upper eyelid (external eyelid weight) or implanted into the upper eyelid (implantable eyelid weight), and is intended for the gravity assisted treatment of lagophthalmos (incomplete eyelid closure). FDA is also giving notice of its intent to exempt the external eyelid weight device from the premarket notification requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). After considering public comments on the proposed classification, FDA will publish a final regulation classifying this device type.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is proposing to classify the scleral plug into class II (special controls), and proposing to exempt the scleral plugs composed of surgical grade stainless steel (with or without coating in gold, silver, or titanium) from premarket notification (510(k)) and to continue to require premarket notification (510(k)) for all other scleral plugs in order to provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the device. The scleral plug is a prescription device used to provide temporary closure of a scleral incision during an ophthalmic surgical procedure.
