Designed to address the problem of redundant lid tissue and lashes entering the surgical field. The speculum features solid, non-reflective blades with flared ends to control lid skin folds. The lower blade is shorter than the upper blade to facilitate easy insertion and removal. Both blades are fenestrated to minimize pressure exerted on the globe. Strongly angled shanks allow the opening and closing mechanism to lie flat along the patient's temple and completely out of the way. Ideal for most ocular procedures including laser and cataract surgery, as well as pterygium, strabismus, corneal transplant and posterior segment surgery.
