Developed specially for ophthalmological surgery, Pro-ophta Sticks are flexible surgical swabs with high absorption rate and good capillary action. The sticks are highly absorbent while maintaining necessary rigidity. Pro-ophta Sticks have bevelled ends. Due to the viscose nonwoven material with an absorbent cellulose coating, the Pro-optha Sticks are gentle to the eye. Pro-ophta Sticks are also useful in eyelid surgery (entropium and ectropium) and in eye muscle operations to treat strabismus.
Because of their special properties, Pro-ophta Sticks can also be used for microsurgery.
