The 10mm cannula is the optimum length to maintain contact
with the silicone oil bubble whilst delivering a steady flow of oil
during extrusion. Maintaining contact with the bubble is critical
to removing heavy oil in a single step and avoid breaks in the
bubble leaving smaller oil bubbles on the retina.
This cannula is the result of collaboration between DORC and
VR surgeons - showing how small product enhancements can
make life easier for VR surgeons!
