Iris Retractors (also known as Iris Hooks) are used when a patient has Non-dilating / Non-fully dilating, or inoperative floppy iris syndrome. Iris Refractors are considered the optimal temporary implants for such conditions. These highly effective iris refractors can be used when pharmacological dilation is unsuccessful. By helping to maintain a safe pupillary diameter, iris refractors are, in many cases, invaluable devices for cataract surgery.


Blue Polypropylene

The Iris Retractor consists of flexible hook made of bright Blue Polypropylene monofilament which reduces iris trauma and adjustable silicone stopper which provides superior grip and allows adjustment of pupil size.


Stretches and stabilizes the iris during surgical procedure

The flexible Iris Retractor enables the mechanical dilation of the pupil where dilation cannot be achieved pharmacologically. It is a simple, safe and fast alternative to reduce the surgical time. The flexible Iris Retractor stretches and retains the iris for maximum visibility during surgical procedures like phacoemulsification, retina and vitreous surgery. It can be safely used in aphakic, pseudophakic and phakic eyes.


Box of 5, sterile (each storage case contains 5 disposable Iris Retractors). Typically, four (4) iris retractors are required to obtain adequate iris dilataion. It is supplied sterile (Ethylene Oxide sterilized).
