Doctors no longer need to sacrifice precision for comfort

A new head strap for surgical magnifying eyeglasses—or surgical loupes—will relieve strain and fatigue for surgeons, clearing the way for more accurate and efficient procedures.
The new design removes the weight of cumbersome surgical loupes from the nasal bridge and ears, and redistributes the burden evenly across the head. The ergonomic surgical loupes head strap relieves the pain associated with poor posture and long procedures. It is easy to use, and fastens comfortably and securely to the user’s head.
A leading pediatric ophthalmologist, formerly at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Donny Suh, M.D., and a local inventor, James Hermsen, teamed up to invent the device.
The device is already available for purchase at, but to discuss licensing opportunities, contact Tyler Scherr, Ph.D., at or 402-559-2140.
