Ophthalmic scissors are a type of surgical instrument used for various procedures in ophthalmology, which is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. These scissors are typically small and delicate, with straight or curved blades that are designed to cut delicate tissues such as the conjunctiva or the cornea. Some common types of ophthalmic scissors include:

  1. Conjunctival scissors: These are small scissors with a curved blade that is designed to cut the thin membrane that covers the white part of the eye (conjunctiva).
  2. Tenotomy scissors: These are delicate scissors with a pointed tip and curved blades that are used to make precise cuts in the eye muscles during strabismus surgery.
  3. Iris scissors: These are small scissors with very fine blades that are used for cutting the iris (the colored part of the eye) during cataract surgery.
  4. Corneal scissors: These are small scissors with a straight or curved blade that are used to make incisions in the cornea (the clear outer layer of the eye) during corneal transplant surgery or other procedures.

Ophthalmic scissors are typically made from high-quality stainless steel and are sterilized before each use to prevent infection. They are designed to be lightweight and easy to handle, with precision blades that can make very small and precise cuts.
