Abstract

The various instruments used in ophthalmic surgeries and dark room instruments are described with a brief discussion, diagram and uses of each instrument. It is essential to sterilize ophthalmic instruments before using them to prevent ocular infections. Sterilization is a process which destroys all microorganisms including bacteria and spores. Sterilization of instruments can be done by physical agents, chemical agents or by radiation.
