Disposable Kit for Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) Eye Exam
The Neotech Ocular Exam Kit helps reduce the risk of cross contamination during ROP and other exams.
Dr. David Sami, Pediatric Ophthalmologist, invented the Neotech Ocular Exam Kit (OEK) with ROP exams in mind. Our disposable specula and depressor are for one-time use. Therefore, there is less risk of cross contamination. It also eliminates the cost of re-sterilizing other products on the market.
Reusable devices need to be sterilized after each use. Consequently, they are often misplaced or unavailable when needed. The OEK is disposable, sterile, and ready to use.
The OEK is available in two sizes—Neonatal and Standard—with a two-headed depressor. Its unique speculum locks in place with eyelid pressure, allows an unrestricted view, and opens and closes with ease. Made in the USA. Click here to request your free samples.
What is ROP
Retinopathy of prematurity is an eye disease that can happen in premature babies. It causes abnormal blood vessels to grow in the retina, and can lead to blindness.
Some cases of ROP are mild and correct themselves. However, some cases are severe enough to cause scarring that can pull the retina away from the rest of the eye. These cases need surgery to prevent vision loss or blindness.
