Gulden Introduces Silicone Set-Up Eyes
The super-realistic silicone eyes are
training aids and assist in ophthalmic equipment setup.
ELKINS PARK, PA Gulden Ophthalmics has introduced a new product that can be used as a training and equipment setup aid for eye surgeons, ophthalmologists, and optometrists. The new Silicone Set-Up Eyes are precise replicas (size, color, and shape) of the human eye, providing a tool that mimics the appearance and feel of human eyes. They are constructed of human prosthetic silicone, which although soft and somewhat pliable to the touch (as are real human eyes), they maintain their shape and color over time. They do not degrade as other plastic eyes are prone to do as their chemical makeup changes.
The Silicone Set-Up Eyes are designed as a training aid for eye surgeons, practitioners, and students. They can be used for other aspects of medical training and medical device set-up applications; for example, they can aid in setting up lasers, Lasik, and other equipment. They can provide surgeons and surgeons in training with the experience of and feel of human eyes during evisceration and enucleation surgeries without having to use animal or actual human eyes. Although they will not provide IOPs (intraocular pressures), they can mimic the feel of portable tonometers being applied to the eye lens. They can also be used to practice using a keratometer to measure corneal curvature (K readings). They can effectively be cleaned with warm water or water and mild liquid detergent if needed. The eyes are available in two iris colors – brown and blue.
