Bausch + Lomb Storz® Ophthalmics Launches the
Whitman Double-Ended LRI Marker

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- Bausch + Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments announced the U.S. release of the E2427 Whitman Double-Ended LRI Marker for LRI procedures.

This double-ended LRI marker is designed using chord lengths for treatment parameters as opposed to degrees. The two astigmatic dials cover a wide range of dioptric treatments with one end marked for 3 mm, 5 mm and 7 mm lengths and the other marked for 4 mm, 6 mm and 8 mm lengths. Both ends include corresponding raised marks on the underside of the dial.

In addition to use in the LRI procedure, the central mark to note axis makes this instrument ideal for marking for toric lens implants.

For optimal visible marks, a surgery skin marker should be used on the raised marks of the underside of the dial, and the instrument should be pressed onto a dry cornea.
