Jaffe Lid Retractor 2.125"
This speculum is designed to pull the lid back with a secure hold to expose the anterior aspect of the globe. The Jaffe lid retractors come in a set of two which allows for simultaneous upper and lower lid retraction. They can be anchored to surgical drapes using rubber bands and hemostat clamps to effectively keep the eyelids out of the surgical field. The open wire design exerts less force on the eyelids so there is theoretically less risk of post-operative ptosis or other eyelid malposition. As the amount of force can be easily adjusted for the upper and lower retractor separately, it can be used to retract delicate tissues such as the skin, orbicularis, and preaponeurotic fat during levator advancement or recession. These are our preferred lid retractors and are commonly used when performing upper eyelid surgery and enucleations or other oculoplastic surgeries involving the globe.
