Small, straight-blade, Surgery Grade Iris scissors were originally designed for the fine, detailed precision for ophthalmic surgery, but because of their accuracy they are used in a variety of clinical settings. Iris scissors are quite small and sharp, with a fine, extremely sharp tip. Dentists use iris scissors for finishing sutures. Doctors and veterinarians use them for small, precise wound closures. Iris Scissors popularity has increased in recent years after jewellery makers and crafters discovered their usefulness when it comes to detail work and close thread trimming. Scissors are sharp to the tips and made from stainless steel. Easily disinfected for long-term use and a good addition to any first aid or first responder kit.
