Ophthalmic Knives, Spuds, and Punches are specialized surgical instruments used in eye surgeries. Here are some commonly used types:

  1. Keratome Knives: A keratome knife is used to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea during LASIK surgery. It has a sharp blade that cuts the cornea in a precise and controlled manner.
  2. MVR Knives: Micro-vitreoretinal (MVR) knives are used in vitreoretinal surgeries to create small incisions in the sclera or cornea. They have a sharp, curved blade that can be used to cut through delicate tissues.
  3. Cataract Knives: Cataract knives are used to make incisions in the cornea during cataract surgery. They have a sharp blade that can be used to create a precise, self-sealing incision.
  4. Scleral Spuds: Scleral spuds are used to gently manipulate the sclera during surgery. They have a flat, rounded tip that allows the surgeon to push and pull on the sclera without damaging the delicate tissues.
  5. Punches: Punches are used to remove small amounts of tissue from the cornea or sclera. They have a sharp, circular blade that can be used to create precise, clean incisions.

These instruments are typically made of high-quality stainless steel and are designed to be durable, easy to use, and easy to sterilize.
