Convenience, safety and sterility are key elements for the effective removal of corneal and conjunctival foreign bodies.
Device Technologies Australia has selected the best instruments from the Beaver-Visitec International (BVI) single-use range to ensure practitioners have the correct items for foreign body removal.
In September 2015, a benefit for foreign body removal was added to the Medicare Optometrical Services Schedule. Item 10944 (Schedule Fee AU$72.15) was introduced for the complete removal of embedded corneal foreign bodies, including the removal of rust rings from the cornea.
Cleaning and sterilising reusable instruments is time consuming and uneconomical in most optometrical practices. Single-use instruments solve these issues and instill confidence in patients. FBR solutions includes 10×25 gauge needles, 20 needle holders,5 PRK Spatulas (foreign body spuds) and 10 jeweller’s forceps.
