Waltham, MA, March 7, 2013 — Beaver-Visitec International, the company that brings together the 80-year heritage of Beaver® microsurgical blades, Visitec® cannulae and instruments, Merocel® fluid control products, and Wet-Field® electrosurgery products, has launched the Osher ThermoDot™ Marker as its latest innovation from their Wet-Field® product line.
Developed in conjunction with renowned cataract surgeon Dr. Robert H. Osher, The Osher ThermoDot™ Marker was launched to improve the marking required for ophthalmic procedures, including astigmatic keratotomy and toric intraocular lens implantation.
Dr. Osher, Medical Director of the Cincinnati Eye Institute and Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, stated, "Ink may be excellent for staining the capsule, but it is poor for marking the ocular surface because it often diffuses or may entirely disappear. The Osher ThermoDot was developed to give a more precise, stable, and easily visualized mark."
"This product is an example of Beaver-Visitec's commitment to providing innovative products that help clinicians and the patients they treat." said Thomas Kapfer, CEO.
Beaver-Visitec officially launched the product at the 2012 American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Annual Meeting where they were trialing the product at their booth. The response was overwhelming. After trying the device, many surgeons stated "The Osher ThermoDot marker is wonderful; it definitely provides a more precise mark." If you would like to try this product, call your local sales representative or call 1-888-906-8080.
