Designed for surgeons familiar with placing a 2 blade axis markers inside a Mendez gauge. The 2 blades on the Barrett Toric Maker are fixed and the degree gauge scale rotates, so the surgeon relates the blade orientation to the handle.
First, the degree gauge is rotated, lining up the desired meridian for the IOL axis to the lines on the edge of the marker. The two blades on the underside of the Axis Marker are then coated with a marking pen and the limbus dried with a sponge. The Axis Marker is then positioned over the eye, rotating the handle to line up the lines at 0 degrees on the degree gauge with the horizontal meridians previously made by the reference marker. The Axis Marker is then lowered to touch the eye so that the blades make the desired marks on the limbus.
