Bausch + Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments Launches Innovative Incision Technology with Tru-Size™ Diamond Knife

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.

For more information, to view a video of the instrument in surgery or to request a quote, visit the Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments web site at www.storzeye.com.
