  • Instrument is reusable and autoclaveable
  • Includes complimentary instructional movie
  • Offered for a 30-day surgical evaluation without obligation

Rhein Medical (St. Petersburg, FL) introduced the Maskin Meibum Expressor, which was developed in coordination with Steven L. Maskin, MD. The instrument is designed to remove meibum from lids. To express meibum, advance and squeeze from the deep lid to the lid margin. The rollers increase pressure in the tarsal plate, advancing meibum through the orifice. The diamond knurling on the rollers prevents slippage and enables the instrument to engage and roll against the smooth conjunctiva without abrading the mucosal surface, according to the company.
