Rhein Medical’s new line of reusable resposable knives has special plastic handles that can withstand an autoclave. The blades are super sharp and consist of keratomes and limited-depth and paracentesis blades. The keratomes include parallel and trapezoidal configurations and incorporate the company’s patented three-dimensional design, which reportedly causes the incision to contort during its creation, providing a more torturous path for fluid egress and resulting in a self-sealing incision. The trapezoidal keratomes have a special mark exactly 2 mm from the distal segment to assist the surgeon in constructing incisions. The resposable blades are competitively priced and are packaged six per box.

CV-500S Online Training Program

An online training program for the CV-5000S Automated Refraction System is the first in a series of interactive online product training systems to be offered by Topcon Medical Systems. The program shows CV-5000S users how to conduct a refraction by breaking down the process into small, user-friendly learning modules. Through a combination of narrated video, graphics, and step-by-step instructions, the training program highlights the key features of the product and the operating procedures associated with each one. Users are also shown how to create customized refraction programs with the CV-5000S. Registered users can access the program on Topcon’s website at any time and from any location.
