Pro-ophta® Ocular Sticks


    Specifically developed for ophthalmic surgery, Pro-ophta® Sticks impress as surgical swabs with their excellent capillary action and high absorption rate. The sticks combine a high absorption capacity with the required rigidity. Pro-ophta® Sticks have bevelled ends. The material used is gentle to eye tissue: They are made from viscose nonwoven material with an absorbent cellulose coating. Pro-ophta® Sticks have been used to particularly good effect in eyelid surgery (entropium and ectroopium) and in eye surgery to treat strabism.

    The specific properties of Pro-ophta® Sticks allow their successful use in microsurgery.
