Electromagnet in Medical Products
Description: The D.O.R.C. Intraocular Electromagnet
offers a truly unique surgical approach for the removal of ferrous intraocular foreign bodies (IOFB). Other magnets are available for ophthalmic surgery, but only D.O.R.C. offers an intraocular electromagnet
for use through a pars plana, limbal or open sky sur...
