In brief: Metallosis

Symptoms of metallosis may include pain at the site of the implant, pseudotumors, and a rash that often means necrosis.
The damaged and inflamed tissue can also help loosen the implant. Metallosis can cause dislocation of non-cemented implants. Not aware of ocular toxicity but if you want to learn more there are several law firms engaged in litigation against the makers of these implants.
