Covid-19 has created a new normal, where every action has to be examined and considered and all safety procedures that can be implemented have to be.

This is especially true when it comes to healthcare.

Thankfully, for those working in the area of ophthalmic and optometry, this has just been made easier.

That is because Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), a leading manufacturer of equipment that is used in this area, is offering its customers a free LENSTAR 900 breath shield.

This breath shield will help ensure the safety of both operators and patients and it is arriving at the ideal time, with some selective surgeries now resuming.

It is designed to provide a barrier between the user of the machine and the patient receiving treatment and can minimise the risk of virus transmissions.

It is recommended that the user clean and disinfect the shield after every use, as viruses can live on surfaces for up to 72 hours.
