Disposable Absorbent Swabs

Ophthalmology places particularly high demands on surgical accessories. The highly absorbent Sugi® (sponge material) has proven to be very effective in the field of ophthalmology. With its tightly bound fibers and firm consistency when wet, Sugi® is ideal for diverse ophthalmic surgical procedures including LASIK. Sugi® absorbs fluids faster and more efficiently than comparable materials. The result is a permanently clean and clear operating site.
