The Rubenstein LRI knife is Accutome's latest limbal relaxing incision diamond knife

RUBENSTEIN LRI KNIFE

Accutome Inc. introduces its latest Limbal Relaxing Incision Diamond Knife, the Rubenstein LRI Knife. This knife, developed by Jonathan Rubenstein, MD, has a low profile, winged footplate that allows full view of the blade during incision. The footplate allows the blade to glide across the corneal epithelium and gives the user extreme control of the blade. The preset diamond blade is permanently set to either 600, 550 or 500 microns. Accutome also offers a Shorti handle, which can be used under the slit lamp. The "in office" short handle version is quite effective for those who do next day astigmatism correction.
