Ophthalmic spatulas/choppers are surgical instruments used in eye surgery, particularly in cataract surgery. They are designed to aid in the removal of the natural lens of the eye and to assist in the placement of an intraocular lens (IOL).

The spatula/chopper has a flat, blunt tip that is used to gently press and rotate the lens material to break it up and facilitate its removal from the eye. Some spatula/choppers have a serrated edge or a pointed tip for more precise manipulation.

These instruments are usually made of stainless steel or titanium, and can be reusable or disposable. They come in different sizes and shapes to accommodate different surgical techniques and patient anatomy.
