April 25, 2007 6:46 am | Katena Products, Inc. | Product Releases | Comments

The Tibolt Punctal Scissors (K4-3130) facilitates an easier and more effective two-snip lacrimal punctoplasty.

To address this problem, this scissors features a conical lower blade to support the punctal ring during approximation of the blades; a textured surface to immobilize the punctal ring as pressure of approximation builds and micro grooves to engage the punctal ring while cutting.
