The invention describes a subsequent adaptive enlargement of the contact surface between the silicon oil and the retina for an optimal fit. This means that the size of the silicon oil bubble is adapted to fit to the volume of the eye socket. To achieve this, the inventor proposes to implant one or several biocompatible balloons together with the silicon oil into the eye. Those balloons absorb the water that is trying to fill the volume created by differences in the eye socket. By doing so, the balloon enlarges its volume and with this, and fills up the remaining space between silicon oil and the retina. Because of this, the retina is fully under pressure at all times. When the eye pressure rises, the balloons release the water. By doing so, the balloons are regulating the eye pressure and ensure adaptation to the varying volume of the eye socket.
