Figure 1-1. Parts of the eye.
1-2.
SPECIAL PREPARATION OF THE OPERATING ROOM
a. Instruments. All instruments used for eye surgery are made for this purpose,
and are unlike those for surgical procedures in other areas of the body. Preferences for
instruments vary so widely among eye surgeons that it may be necessary to list all
instruments used for each operation by each different surgeon. Therefore, the
surgeon's card must be carefully checked when selecting instruments for an eye
operation.
b. Sponges. Gauze sponges are considered much too rough for use on an
eyeball. Instead, dampened cotton applicators are used. Special cellulose sponges,
specifically designed and prepackaged sterile by manufacturers for eye surgery, are
also available.
c. Magnifying Glasses. The surgeon may wish to use special magnifying
glasses during the procedure; therefore, these must be cleansed and ready for use.
