AccuSharp Guarded Blades (Accutome, Inc.) are disposable guarded knives that offer eye surgeons consistent sharpness to meet their incisional needs. According to the company, the design of these guarded knives' handles is similar to that of the unguarded knives with which surgeons are familiar. Unlike most safety knives with thick handles, those of the AccuSharp Guarded Blades have the standard diameter typical of unguarded knives to accommodate the safety guard. Additionally, the AccuSharp's shield slides all the way back so that it sits behind the surgeon's hand, allowing maximum comfort. When not in use, the guard can be slid forward to protect users from the sharp point of the blade.
AccuSharp Guarded Knives are safe, sharp, and affordable options for hospitals and surgery centers in the market for safety knives without the expensive costs. The company currently offers a full line of angled slit, crescent, and straight blades.

The Muraine Punch simplifies DMEK graft creation.
- Single-use donor punch
- Designed for DMEK
- Two notches in punch blade 180° apart
In collaboration with Marc Muraine, MD, PhD, of the University Hospital of Rouen, France, Moria Inc. has developed a single-use donor vacuum punch for the preparation of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) grafts. According to the company, the Muraine Punch simplifies DMEK graft creation, minimizes the loss of donor tissue, and provides better cellular viability. It is also faster than alternative DMEK techniques.
Mounted on a Moria artificial chamber and folded with the endothelium to the inside, the graft does not “scroll up” on itself, making it easier to insert and position in the anterior chamber.
