ClearCut™ S Safety Series Incisional Instruments

Client: Alcon

The ClearCut™ S Safety Series safety scalpel is a disposable incisional instrument used during cataract surgery.

The patented retractable blade guard protects doctors and nurses from accidental sharps injuries; reducing injuries and minimizing the potential spread of infectious disease. Intuitive single-handed activation enables protection with minimal change to typical workflow.

Research drove a holistic, safety-focused product design strategy for the world leader in ophthalmic knives — a cataract surgery scalpel that skirts broad patents and meets manufacturing requirements.
