If you order this product, you receive 12 eyes in 6 containers with moisture. You should also protect the container from sunlight if possible since the artificial eye is mostly made out of photoreactive 3D-printed materials. The material reacts to temperature fluctuations. In the cold, the material hardens, so to attain the most realistic training experience, the artificial eye should be stored at room temperature.
How to operate with Eye 4 Cataract:
Our Eye 4 Cataract is mimicking the anterior segment of the eye with a harder lens than a pig eye has. Several operations can be simulated with such a configuration: clear corneal incisions, multiplanar self-sealing incision and suturing, performing of the rhexis, hydrodissection, use of OVD, nucleus disassembly one- and two-handed, divide and conquer, chop techniques (LINK), ruining the capsule bag in case of wrong behavior, implantation of IOLs, ICLs, and add-ons, as well as explantation.
You can choose between several different options:
Cataract: Soft or Hard
We recommend the use the hard cataract because this one is better for training phaco techniques like divide and conquer chopping techniques. (LINK)
Rhexis: 5mm and 6mm
If you have no lens in the eye, somebody took it out. This usually happens in conditions with a regular explanation, and therefore you have a rhexis. We are able to punch all sizes of holes but found these two sizes most practicable. As always, if you need anything else, please contact us. (LINK)
Iris: 5mm, 6mm, and 7mm
Our iris is mostly for a more realistic behavior, but you can also use it for simulating a non-dilating/not fully dilating, or inoperative floppy iris syndrome. Our iris material is slightly firmer; therefore, we start already with a diameter of 5mm because Tension Rings or other pupil dilators would not spread apart a 2mm artificial iris.
Sometimes we are not in the best mood or our machines are getting sloppy. This can result in lower quality as we like to offer you. In very few cases, you can get hold of the manufacturer of such products. With us you are lucky, though, because if you are not happy with the quality of our product, please contact us and we will not only swap it, no, we will replace it doubly.
