Scissors, Surgical, Eye, Lens Capsule

Definition : Surgical scissors designed to incise the lens capsule (i.e., capsulotomy) during ophthalmic procedures. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with very thin and sharp 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 that provide a more uniform and/or sensitive manipulation. They are used in ophthalmic procedures such as cataract excision.
