Bausch + Lomb Releases Single-Use Vitreoretinal Asymmetric Peeling Forceps

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - August 31, 2010) -  Bausch + Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments announces the U.S. release of a new, single-use, asymmetric peeling forceps for vitreoretinal surgery. The forceps are available in 23- and 25-gauge options for facilities seeking the safety, consistency and convenience a single-use instrument offers.

The peeling forceps feature an asymmetric jaw design for excellent visualization of retinal membranes with a sleek, ergonomic handle consistent with the popular Storz Ophthalmics reusable design. The forceps can be used for ILM, epiretinal membrane peel, macular puckers and cellophane maculopathy. The balanced, single-use design provides optimal feel and control for customers concerned about the fragile nature of reusable retinal instrument options.
