Aspirator/Irrigators, Eye Surface

Definition : Aspirators/irrigators designed for automated or semiautomated irrigation and washing of the eye surface (i.e., sclera and cornea). These devices typically consist of a main electromechanical unit that may include a pump for infusion of nonmedicated liquids (e.g., saline), an extractor, and controls for the temperature and the rate of irrigation; the units may be coupled to special (e.g., Morgan therapeutic) lenses and/or to dedicated (e.g., Lewis) handpieces, cannulae, catheters, and/or probes. Eye lavage units are used to remove damaged tissue and/or debris (e.g., foreign objects) before and/or during ophthalmic procedures or surgery and in emergency departments; the units are frequently available as an integral part or to be attached to ophthalmic examination and/or surgical (e.g., phacoemulsification) units.
