Disposable Absorbent Swabs

Ophthalmology places particularly high demands on surgical accessories. The highly absorbent Sugi® (sponge material) is used in the field of ophthalmology. With its tightly bound fibers and firm consistency when wet, Sugi® is used 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.
