About this work

Description

Microsurgery, as the name suggests, is performed on an extremely small scale and requires precision instruments. Microsurgery is now commonly used for reconstructive surgery – a fairly new discipline, developed in the early twentieth century. The eye undergoing surgery requires magnification as the structures of the eye are both small and highly sensitive. The instruments include a repositor, for returning a part of the eye that has been moved during surgery to its original position, cornea scissors and a forceps blade holder. maker: Downs Surgical Limited Place made: England, United Kingdom
