Hornblass Ocular Protection Shield

Albert Hornblass, M.D., designed this acrylic protection shield with a handle with a small opening located 1.5mm from the margin of the above shield; located at the lateral or medial corners of the eye, which will not interfere with surgery on the lids. This handle allows for easy insertion and removal of the shield. A black 4-0 suture can easily be threaded through the opening and clamped with a hemostat to ensure the shields immobility during surgery, as well as allowing easier removal and help prevent inadvertent removal of the shield after surgery. This shield is extremely useful in any  eyelid, eyebrow, or orbital surgery.We have this shield available in three sizes: 18mm, 23mm, 25mm sizes; and in four colors: White, Red, Blue, & Green. We have another shield with an vaulted portion for the cornea that comes in 21mm & 24mm sizes.Do NOT steam autoclave.
