Scissors, Surgical, Eye, Microsurgery

Definition : Eye (ophthalmic) surgery scissors designed to cut tissue (e.g., corneal, scleral) during ophthalmic microsurgical procedures. These scissors are typically very small handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades (frequently beveled) with straight or curved, either sharp or blunt tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually attached to serrated flat handles to provide a safer grip; the handles also have inserted flat springs to avoid uneven tension and to provide a more uniform and/or sensitive manipulation. Ophthalmic microsurgery scissors are used in procedures such as keratoplasty, keratectomy, corneal trephination during corneal transplants, corneal section, and other ophthalmic procedures involving the eye tissues, including pediatric patients.
