Slit Lamp Breath Shields

Slit Lamp Breath shield could help prevent the spread of coronavirus and other respiratory illness during eye exams. Ophthalmologist and other eye care practitioners are required to be in close contact with patients during an eye examination procedure and thus they were not able to maintain the distance of 6 feet which is recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In order to combat this and prevent the transmission of respiratory illnesses including COVID-19, Topcon is now offering all of its slit lamp customers a free breath shield that fits onto their instrument and provides the first line of defence for both healthcare providers and patients. If you are Topcon customers you can fill this form to get free slit lamp breath
