High contrast lighting in the OR can expose surgeons and staff to excessive light intensity and glare, resulting in eyestrain. Eyestrain can be experienced as burning, watering, blurring, headaches and fatigue. To address this eyestrain problem, MCD has introduced ACTIVA®, a tinted, minimally reflective surgical drape. The patented, visually soothing blue tint of ACTIVA drapes significantly reduces glare, resulting in less eyestrain and fatigue. With 43 percent reduction in glare and 41 percent less reflected light intensity, ACTIVA drapes offer a better experience for all surgical procedures.
