Bausch + Lomb Releases Single-Use Silicone I/A Handpieces

ALISO VIEJO, CALIF. -- Bausch + Lomb announces the U.S. release of two new additions to the Storz® Ophthalmic line of single-use instrumentation. The 85910ST Silicone I/A Handpiece for the Stellaris® System and the 85910S Silicone I/A Handpiece for the Millennium™ System and most competitive systems are now available for facilities seeking the safety, consistency and convenience a single-use instrument offers.

Both instruments feature a flexible 45-degree silicone tip designed for effective cortical removal, capsule polishing, viscoelastic removal and intraocular lens manipulation in the capsular bag. Recommended for use in a 2.2 to 2.8 mm incision, the smooth irrigation and aspiration ports eliminate sharp edges for reduced risk of capsule rupture. In addition, the semi-transparent silicone sleeve provides superior visualization.
