Labtician Ophthalmics, Inc. has been at the forefront of silicone scleral buckle development since the earliest days of its acceptance as a viable surgical technique. In 1959, Labtician was cited as being the first manufacturer of silicone scleral buckles by Dr Louis Girrard (Houston, Texas) in a presentation to the Mid-Southern Section Meeting of the Association for Research in Ophthalmology. More than 50 years later, Labtician continues to introduce advancements in the field.

Today, Labtician Ophthalmics, Inc. services our retinal specialists by offering the widest range of scleral buckle styles to satisfy their specific requirements. Our quality standards are the highest in the industry.

S3014 Labtician Silicone Tire is a sterile, non-bioabsorbable device intended to be implanted for intrascleral and episcleral buckling for the surgical treatment of retinal detachment. It is typically a moulded solid silicone or silicone sponge device available in a variety of shapes and sizes that is used to compress the retina long-term (up to months) to support its reattachment following the operative treatment of severe retinal detachment.  S3014 Labtician Silicone Tire also known as a scleral buckling component, will occupy the intraocular space to provide compression against the retina so that it can reattach. It is typically removed after a period of time depending upon the clinical findings.

In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.

Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product.  The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years.  The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.

There is a $125 minimum order due to the cost of shipping. You can add items from different specialties it just needs to be $125 or more in order to complete the transaction.
