Pro-ophta® Sponge Points


The Pro-ophta® Sponge Points complete the L&R range of ophthalmological swab products. Due to their polyvinyl alcohol material, they can absorb up to 15 times their own weight in fluids. They can be used to swab residual fluid and to smooth the anterior corneal lamellae at the end of Lasik surgery, for example. They are also used for trabeculectomies and for complications arising during vitrectomy procedures. In ophthalmology and microsurgery procedures, the sponge points are held in grasping or sponge-holding forceps and then used to absorb fluids. The low-linting, biocompatible material minimises foreign body sensation in the eye.
