Kendrick Surgical Microscope Eyepiece Heaters

SurgicalEyepieceHeater We have sold our systems to hospitals and surgery centres who use them to clear condensation on the eyepieces of their surgical microscopes.

When a surgeon places his/her eye next to the ocular on the microscope in a cold operating room, mositure from the eye will condense onto the glass, rendering the microscope unusable until the moisture in cleared. Wiping the moisture from the glass is ineffective as the moisture will immediately reappear when the eye is again placed to the ocular. Applying a gentle heat to the glass is the only truly effective method to prevent moisture condensation on these oculars.

Our heater systems have proven to be 100% effective at curing the problem of moisture condensing on surgical microscope eyepieces. One of the most notable users of our heater systems in the medical field is Dr. Gazi Yaşargil, who was elected "Neurosurgery's Man of the Century 1950-1999". Dr. Yaşargil has been a regular user of our products and a happy customer of Kendrick Astro Instruments for many years now. We have Dr. Yaşargil's permission to use his name in this endorsement.
