    Abstract

    The cauterising iris scissors described here are a modification achieved by suitably insulating the standard De Wecker's iris scissors. This modification provides in addition to cutting an advantageous cauterising effect, which could prove useful in the surgery of eye conditions with high risk of bleeding or metastasis. It utilises the optimum electric current range of 20-40 mA.
