Bausch & Lomb Releases ET2057 Singh Akahoshi Prechop Forceps with Paddle Tip

ALISO VIEJO, CALIF. -- Bausch & Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments announced the U.S. release of the ET2057 Singh Akahoshi Prechop Forceps with Paddle Tip.

The Singh Akahoshi Prechop Forceps is used during cataract surgery for the prechop technique to segment the lens nucleus prior to phacoemulsification. The thin paddle design of the tip allows for ease of insertion into the lens nucleus, while the broad surface of the tip provides excellent splitting action. The instrument is initially introduced into the lens, and the handle is compressed to create one central chop. The lens halves are then rotated and split to form quadrants. The versatile cross-action tip can be used in a multitude of incision sizes, including the popular MICS™ 1.8mm procedure.
