Scissors, Surgical, Eye, Eyelid
Definition : Eye (ophthalmic) surgery scissors designed to cut eyelid tissue during ophthalmic procedures. These scissors are typically very small handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with slightly curved sharp and frequently serrated tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers and are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Eyelid scissors are used in ophthalmic procedures intended to repair the eyelids and/or for cosmetic procedures (i.e., blepharoplasty).
