ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- Bausch + Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments announces a new innovation in incision technology with the U.S. release of the Tru-Size™ Diamond Knife.
This innovative diamond knife enhances the already popular Storz
profile diamond knife with incision widths engraved on the diamond
blade, ensuring accuracy of the incision size. The profile design of the
diamond blade features an asymmetric edge to ensure a straight tunnel
through the cornea, allowing for easier creation of water-tight
incisions while producing less corneal distortion.
A tip to shoulder length of 1.75 mm provides the surgeon with the extra
diamond blade length often necessary in clear corneal incisions. This
unique marked diamond blade is now available in a 1.8 mm to 2.2 mm
trapezoid knife design for microincision cataract surgery under product
number E0130 1.8/2.2.
