    Oplight comprises of a surgical steel reusable retractor base unit and two Light Cartridges which are disposed of after a single use.

The Oplight™

Traditional overhead lighting systems or head mounted fibre optic systems have limitations and are sometimes sub-optimal for surgery into deep cavities where shadowing can be an issue. The integral light guide designed into each Oplight cartridge maximises and directs light directly into the cavity eliminating the possibility of shadowing.

Key Features


Single use sterile disposable light cartridge

Light cartridges are provided in a sterile pouch of two, for stocking within the theatre environment. Can be inserted into base unit in a pre-op setting or directly in situ as required.


Reusable Retractor

The Oplight Retractor can be reprocessed through normal hospital sterilisation protocols and then further sterile light cartridges are available separately.


Light Duration

The light cartridge will provide adequate illumination of the surgical cavity for up to 90 mins. The flexibility to switch on and off one or both sides will provide varying illumination that should prove useful for many operations.

"I have now tried one of the Oplight retractors. It was very helpful for a deep anterior posterior capsule. The light was bright and well-focused and the steel retractor retracted well and held in place well.

I am sure will be ideal for a fem–pop bypass in a deep popliteal fossa and will save the next one for such a case"

- Mr Steven Boom, Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Ayr
