If you order this product your receive 12 eyes in 6 containers within a moist environment to keep our eyes fresh for at least one year. This is necessary because our eyes are ready to use as the eyes on the patient table. As you can imagine, the quality suffers if you keep the eyes for too long outside the container. Also you should protect the containers and the eyes from heat and sunlight if possible.
Our Eye 4 Cataract is basically the anterior segment of the eye with a harder lens than a pig eye has. Several operations can be simulated with such a configuration: clear corneal incisions, multiplanar self-sealing incision and suturing, performing of the rhexis, hydrodissection, use of OVD, nucleus disassembly one- and two-handed, divide and conquer, chop techniques (LINK), ruining the capsule bag in case of wrong behaviour, implantation of IOLs, ICLs and add-ons, as well as explantation.
You can choose between several different options:
Cataract: Soft or Hard
We recommend the use the hard cataract because this one is better for training phaco techniques like divide and conquer, chop techniques. (LINK)
Rhexis: 5mm and 6mm
If you have no lens in the eye, somebody took it out. This usually happens in conditions with an regularly explanation and therefore you have a rhexis. We are able to punch all sizes of holes but found these two sizes most practicable. As always, if you need something else, please contact us. (LINK)
Iris: 5mm, 6mm and 7mm
Our iris is mostly for a more realistic behaviour but you can also use it for simulating a non-dilating/not fully dilating, or inoperative floppy iris syndrome. Our iris material is slightly firmer, therefore we start already with a diameter of 5mm because Tension Rings or other pupil dilators would not spread apart a 2mm artificial iris.
Sometimes we are not in the best mood or our machines are getting sloppy. This can result in a lower quality as we like to offer you. In very few cases you can get hold of the manufacturer of such products. With us you are lucky, because if you are not happy with the quality of our product, just contact us and we will not only swap it, no, we will replace it doubly.
