Dr. Barry Seibel
As Dr. Seibel explains, "The development of each of the
Seibel surgical instruments occurred while applying
to cataract and LASIK surgery.
During each step of every operation,
I ask myself what the goal of that moment and
how it could best be served. If the answer is not the current
technique and instrumentation, then I systematically derive how I can make improvements.
This is how I created the 20 specialized Seibel instruments that enhance
safety, patient comfort, and surgical efficiency."
For a complete list of all the Seibel surgical instruments go to: Curriculum Vitae - Instrumentation.
Below is data from Bausch & Lomb on three of these surgical instruments:
Bausch & Lomb is pleased
to introduce innovative surgical instruments design for cataract/refractive
surgery by Barry Seibel, MD
E4054R Seibel 3-D Lid Speculum - Solid Blade
E4075R Seibel 3-D Lid Speculum - Ribbon Blade
E4075RC Seibel 3-D Lid Speculum - Ribbon Blade Compact
Lid control for cataract and refractive procedures.
- Unique pivot axis allows blades to gently support lids through an anatomically
correct arc of motion.
- Swivel screw adjustment mechanism rotates out of the way after adjustment and
provides a secure lock.
- Lid blades contoured to the surface of the eye are excellent for creating exposure
of the eye surface during phacoemulsification or microkeratome suction ring
- Ribbon design of blades allows same
surgical ergonomic access as open wire designs but the ribbon stock
distributes force over a larger surface area than the tangent point of
contact of a wire speculum, thereby reducing focal pressure on the
eyelid and enhancing patient comfort.
Available in solid blade or open "ribbon" style blade.
Unlike conventional speculum designs that open in one plane, the blades of the
Seibel 3-D Speculum follow the anatomical path of the globe to gently support
Screw mechanism swings up for positioning and adjustment
and down out of the way during the procedure.
