Scissors, Surgical, Eye, Suture/Stitch Removal

Definition : Eye (ophthalmic) surgery scissors designed to cut sutures and/or to remove stitches. These scissors are typically small hand-held, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with straight or curved sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action); a blade may include a notch to facilitate rapid pickup and cutting. The blades are attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers and are joined by a swivel pin in the center. The blades are typically attached to serrated flat handles to provide a safer grip with inserted flat springs that avoid uneven tension and provide a more uniform and/or sensitive manipulation. Eye surgery scissors with larger finger rings and flat shanks to facilitate operation (e.g., ribbon style) are also available.
