Atomic Edge™

Atomic Edge™

Innovative Atomic Edge™ Blade Technology

Atomic Edge™Developed through the technology and processes used in semiconductor fabrication, Atomic Edge™ silicon single-use blades deliver higher quality and performance than metal blades. It is the first single-use silicon blade for ophthalmic surgery.

Atomic Edge™ represents a breakthrough in blade technology with its single crystalline silicon molecular structure, to deliver edge sharpness and performance approaching that of a diamond blade. The Atomic Edge™ blade features an edge radius of 40 nm, comparing to approximately 600 nm for metal knives, and 20 nm for diamond knives.

Atomic Edge™ Safety Knives

Atomic Edge™ safety knives are designed to combine diamond-like performance with single-use safety and convenience.

The Atomic Edge™ blade architecture is designed for incision control. The double-bevel design ensures straight penetration in single or two-plane clear cornea incision. The blade has non-sharpened parallel sides that minimize the risks of accidental side-cutting. The tip angle has been designed to produce the correct penetration depth, resisting over penetration.

Similar to Beaver™ Safety Ophthalmic Knives, Atomic Edge™ knives feature an advanced retractable protective shield designed to protect healthcare professionals and to protect the blade. The shield’s slider mechanism is designed to open and close with a single-hand operation. Request more information
