Designed for nasal or temporal placement. This speculum specifically addresses the problems encountered during LASIK surgery. In the fully open position, the wide clearance between the blades of this speculum makes it ideal for accommodating the vacuum ring of a microkeratome. The solid blades keep the surgical field free of eyelashes while their non-reflective finish eliminates glare from the microscope light. The reversibility of this speculum also makes this an excellent choice for cataract and other anterior segment surgeries.
