Ophthalmic Instruments- Spatulas / Manipulators
Ophthalmic spatulas and manipulators are surgical instruments that are used during eye surgery to manipulate and position delicate tissue. They are typically made of stainless steel and come in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the specific surgical procedure being performed.
Some common types of ophthalmic spatulas and manipulators include:
- Sinskey hooks: These are small, curved instruments with a blunt tip that are used to manipulate the lens during cataract surgery.
- Maloney dilators: These are thin, flat instruments that are used to dilate the punctum (the opening in the eyelid that allows tears to drain) during procedures such as dacryocystorhinostomy.
- Jameson muscle hooks: These are small, blunt hooks that are used to hook and manipulate eye muscles during strabismus surgery.
- Lester hooks: These are small, curved hooks with a pointed tip that are used to manipulate and position the iris during certain types of glaucoma surgery.
- Kelman-McPherson spatula: This is a thin, flat instrument with a curved tip that is used to manipulate the lens during cataract surgery.
- Bonn forceps: These are small, delicate forceps with a curved tip that are used to manipulate the cornea during certain types of corneal surgery.
Overall, ophthalmic spatulas and manipulators play a crucial role in ensuring that eye surgery is performed safely and effectively, allowing surgeons to manipulate delicate tissue with precision and care.
