Pro-ophta Sponge Points round out the range of L&R ophthalmological swab products. Thanks to the polyvinyl alcohol material used, 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. For ophthalmological or microsurgery procedures the sponge points are clamped using grasping forceps or sponge-holding forceps and then used to absorb fluids. The low-linting, biocompatible material minimises the foreign body sensation in the eye.
