Scissors, Surgical, Eye, Vitrectomy

Definition : Eye (ophthalmic) surgery scissors designed for partial excision of vitreous tissue. These scissors are typically small handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with straight or angled (e.g., 60 degrees) sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing). The blades are attached to a serrated flat handle to provide a safer grip. Vitrectomy scissors are used mainly to remove the front part of the vitreous tissue, to perform a pars plana (the thinner part of the ciliary disc) incision to remove vitreous membranes and/or opacities, and for removal of the content of the vitreous chamber.
