Rare Earth Intraocular Magnet

 The Rare Earth Intraocular Magnet is especially designed for the atraumatic removal of magnetic intraocular foreign bodies. The precise, sleek design of this probe minimizes the "jumping effect" commonly observed with electromagnetic devises. Due to its 24K gold plating, the instrument also minimizes the possibility of secondary foreign body incarceration. The magnetic probe is non reactive with tissue. The intraocular magnet can be used with a limbal, open sky, or pars plana approach. The Rare Earth Intraocular Magnet can be utilized in the management of trauma caused by magnetic foreign bodies.
