The Volk Blumenthal Suturelysis lens, invented by Prof. Eytan Blumenthal of Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel. It is used for performing Suturelysis after glaucoma filtration surgery. It provides clear visibility in routine cases, as well as enhanced suture visibility in difficult situations.
This lens is used to relax sutures placed deep within the tissue during glaucoma (trabeculectomy) surgery, enabling increased flow at the surgical site, leading to further reduction in intra-ocular pressure.
