New guard protects opthamologists’ hands during exams

An opthalmologist from the University of Nebraska Medical Center has developed a slit lamp shield that can protect the patient and examiner from respiratory droplets during an opthalmic or optometric exam. This new design of the slit lamp shield provides excellent coverage of the examiners hands while retaining its universal use.
Slit lamps are an essential piece of any opthalmic optpmetric exam and this new design will protect the provider as well as the patience from the transmission of infectious diseases.
