MUMBAI -- Sterilisable Lens Provides High Resolution Views of Trabecular Meshwork

For Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) and goniotomy procedures, Volk's new Surgical Gonio Lens provides clear anterior chamber angle images.

With a 1.2x image magnification, the contact lens' high quality Volk optics delivers crisp, high resolution views. The Surgical Gonio is particularly well suited for MIGS and all surgical gonio procedures. The lens' small profile is equally useful for paediatric postoperative gonioscopy.

The lens is compatible with both steam and gas sterilization, constructed to withstand repeated sterilization cycles without image degradation over time. Instead of left hand- or right hand-specific versions of the lens, Volk designed a universal positioning handle that moves to accommodate left hand, right hand and centre positions.
