At Air-Tite Products, we value being able to provide high-quality products for specialty uses. Most of our human health products are utilized across many different areas of specialties, from aesthetics and dermatology to oncology and ophthalmology.
Our ophthalmology customers commonly order TSK needles for intravitreal injections for the treatment of macular edema and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), sclerotomy incisions, and injection of intravitreal implants and placement of intra-ocular lenses (IOL).
Many ophthalmology practices choose TSK needles because of their exceptional sharpness, wide variety of sizes available, and needle hub options. TSK needles are made of a hard polymer that prevents flexing of the hub when exposed to high pressures; the built-in exterior threading allows for a tight Luer Lock connection that prevents needle pop-off at the hub. Preventing needle pop-off is especially important due to the extremely delicate anatomy in and around the eye. Air-Tite is also proud to offer the TSK line of low dead space hub needles, which is designed to reduce the effective space left behind in the needle hub to close to zero, leading to significant cost savings when injecting expensive drugs.
The most popular gauges ordered for these ophthalmic procedures are 30G, 32G, 33G, and 0.2 (14% thinner than 33G). These TSK needles are available in a wide variety of lengths as well, including a range from 4 mm to 13 mm.
At Air-Tite Products, we carry a wide selection of both needles and syringes to meet your Ophthalmology needs.
