A good eye lid speculum or eyelid holder called Speculum is a necessary tool to stop the eyes from flashing during the surgery. It is basically a device to keep the eyelids apart prior to examining or operation on the eye. The Jaffe is one of the best eyelid specula. It can be used as a self-retaining retractor. What is a retractor? It is a surgical tool that can be used to separate the ends of a clinical wound or incision or to grasp the underlying tissues and organs and access the body parts under the cut.
The Jaffe eye lid speculum gives an outstanding exposure during most of the eyelid operations. Such self-retaining retractor is a great substitute for the conventional Desmarres vein retractor held by the surgical assistant. Dr. Jaffe1 designed this type of eye lid speculum for autonomous retraction of every single eyelid at the time of the cataract surgery.
For the eyelid surgeries, the wire speculum’s curved ends are fitted into the operating wounds. In order to offer a retraction, the attached rubber band at the end of the speculum is fastened to the surgical drape. The speculum’s soft natured stainless-steel wire allows stress-free molding to accommodate noticeable brows with sunken eyes or proptotic eyes. Other types of eye lid speculum retractors that are less flexible or autonomous such as the Tennant eyelid speculum retractor are less convenient and valuable in this regard.
