Protective coverings for ophthalmic devices

With the health and safety of you, your patients and your staff in mind, ophthalmic practices are advised to take extra precautions to prevent the spread of pathogens by using protective coverings on equipment when at all possible and to thoroughly disinfect instruments and exam lanes after each patient encounter.

To help facilitate a hygienic environment, single-use protective coverings are suggested for components of diagnostic devices, such as OCT and fundus imaging devices, that come into contact with patients and staff. Using single-use  protective coverings may help put your patient at ease and demonstrates your commitment to their health and well-being.

Suggested coverings include polyethylene bags (1-2 mil thick) and low-tack adhesive polyethylene films for:

  • Forehead rests
  • Chin rests
  • Handle grips
  • Keyboard and mouse
  • Patient response buttons

Film coverings are not sold by ZEISS. The Sourcing Guide is provided to enable you to source coverings. Potential vendors are provided as an example only.

Recommendations for ZEISS diagnostic instruments

  • Protective coverings are recommended to be used as single-use disposables and should be changed after each patient visit.
  • Simply slip the sleeves and films on before the patient arrives. Remove and replace them before your next patient exam.
  • When using, please ensure to mount without covering or blocking functional elements such as ventilation, optical lenses, etc.
