What is ophthalmic surgery?

Ophthalmic surgery is a specific field of medicine that deals with diagnosing and treating eye-related conditions and disorders. Ophthalmologists, trained medical professionals with expertise in this field, use advanced surgical techniques and technologies to perform intricate procedures on delicate eye tissues. The primary objective of ophthalmic surgery is to ensure patients' best possible outcomes and help them regain their vision and eye health.

What types of custom surgical blades does Baucor manufacture?

Baucor offers a diverse range of custom-made surgical blades that respond to the requirements of various ophthalmologic procedures. Our microblades are customized for intricate eye surgeries.

How is ophthalmic surgery performed?

Ophthalmic surgery involves performing intricate procedures to treat a range of eye conditions. Ophthalmologists conduct the surgical interventions within a confined area of the eye. The complexity of the procedures requires a high level of precision. To provide optimal patient care, ophthalmologists require specialized equipment and extensive knowledge of eye anatomy.

Before ophthalmic surgery, the patient undergoes a thorough evaluation, including a comprehensive eye exam, imaging scans, and a medical history review to assess their fitness for the surgery. Depending on the diagnosis, the patient may be administered non-surgical interventions like medication and physical therapy.

Ophthalmic surgeries use local anesthesia to numb the eye and surrounding tissues, ensuring the patient's comfort and safety during the operation. In some cases, general anesthesia may be used for more complex surgeries. Then, the ophthalmologist uses micro-surgical blades to create a small incision to access the targeted area and to perform the necessary treatment. Finally, the incision is closed, and sterile dressings are applied to the treated area to promote faster healing.

The eye surgery is a complex procedure, and it requires high precision. Ophthalmologists use advanced techniques and tools to achieve the best outcomes for their patients; one crucial tool is custom-made blades to ensure the surgeon can perform the procedure precisely. 

How does Baucor collaborate with industry partners?

What are Baucor's quality assurance and regulatory?

Baucor adheres rigorously to quality assurance and regulatory protocols to ensure the highest quality products. Each custom-made blade undergoes astringent testing to meet or exceed industry benchmarks. Surgeons trust our products' reliability and performance due to our commitment to regulatory compliance.

How are medical blades manufactured?

  • Cutting:
    The first step in manufacturing is to use a CNC machine to cut the blade to the desired shape.

  • Heating:
    Next, the blade is put through a heat treatment process to harden the metal and make it more durable.

  • Sharpening:
    After heating, the blade is sharpened to remove any imperfections. A grinding process is then used to refine and make the blade sharper. 

  • Coating:
    By coating the tips of blades with these metals, the blade can better withstand wear and tear. It can prolong the blade's lifespan.

Which material should you use for the blades?

At Baucor, we understand the importance of precision and accuracy in ophthalmic surgery. That's why we use only the highest quality materials to ensure that our blades and saws meet and exceed quality and performance standards. 

We offer the following materials for surgical blades:

Stainless steel:
The most used material for surgical instruments, including orthopedic blades and saws. It is a durable, corrosion-resistant material that is easy to sterilize.

• Carbon steel:
Another option for surgical blades. It is renowned for its sharpness and ability to retain its edge well. However, it is less resistant to corrosion than stainless steel.

• Tungsten carbide:
An excellent choice for the tips or edges of surgical blades. It comprises tungsten and carbon, giving it superior durability and resistance to wear.

How do medical blades cut?

A medical blade can make the following cuts:

Zigzag shape

Most used medical blades:

Medical incisions may require various blade shapes based on specific surgical needs.







In ophthalmic surgeries, accuracy is of utmost importance to ensure successful outcomes. Baucor, a leading manufacturer of surgical custom blades, is committed to crafting customized blades that meet and exceed the standards required in this field. Baucor collaborates with industry partners to develop blades tailored to each surgical procedure's unique needs to advance the field and improve patients' outcomes.
