ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- Bausch + Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic
Instruments announces the U.S. release of a new, single-use, asymmetric
peeling forceps for vitreoretinal surgery. The forceps are available in
23- and 25-gauge options for facilities seeking the safety, consistency
and convenience a single-use instrument offers.
The peeling forceps feature an asymmetric jaw design for excellent
visualization of retinal membranes with a sleek, ergonomic handle
consistent with the popular Storz
Ophthalmics reusable design.
The forceps can be used for ILM, epiretinal membrane peel, macular
puckers and cellophane maculopathy. The balanced, single-use design
provides optimal feel and control for customers concerned about the
fragile nature of reusable retinal instrument options.
Both the 23- and 25-gauge versions are available in boxes of two and six
for facility convenience. Customers can receive more information or
