Extractors, Metal, Magnetic

Definition : Metal extractors designed to pullout small ferromagnetic foreign objects from the eye and/or the surface (e.g., skin) of the body. These devices may consist of a handheld instrument with a magnet at one end and a wire loop at the other end for mechanical extraction; or, less frequently, of an electric unit that includes the electromagnet, a power supply, controls for the intensity of the magnetic field, and switches; usually they also include several detachable probes (e.g., straight, curved) to provide better access and minimum trauma to the eye and/or other points in the surface of the body.
