Feather® New Diamond-Like Keratomes Are Available Exclusively From Oasis Medical

The Ultra-Sharp Scalpels Are Positioned to Be a Cost-Effective Alternative for Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) and Hospitals

GLENDORA, CA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2013) - Oasis Medical Inc., U.S. manufacturer and distributor of high quality disposable surgical instruments, ocular lubricating and cleansing solutions, and exclusive distributor in the U.S. for the Feather® ophthalmic scalpels, announces the availability of the diamond-like Feather® keratome. Feather® raises the bar with its keratome's superior performance and advantage of reusability for a sizeable return on investment.

Feather® utilizes proprietary manufacturing technology that produces ultra-sharp, low friction blade performance that rivals diamonds. It has earned a reputation for high quality metal scalpels that can be used multiple times, which helps to manage cost-per-case while maintaining compliance with Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) regulations. 

"The primary cataract incision is the most important to the ease of the procedure and overall outcome. The new Feather keratome produces a smooth, precise entry to the anterior chamber with no drag or concern of catching Descemet's membrane," said Adelaide Priester, D.O. "The reusable blades are cost effective in our surgery center [ASC] and perform well for multiple procedures, which greatly reduces our cost per case."
The new Feather® keratome blades are available in widths from 1.4mm, 1.6mm, 1.8mm, 2.2mm, 2.4mm, 2.75mm, 2.8mm, 3.0mm, and 3.2mm.

The new Feather® scalpel, Oasis Iris Expander, Oasis Tears dry eye product and more can be seen this weekend, April 20 through 23, 2013, at ASCRS in San Francisco at the Oasis Medical booth number 702.
