Eyelid speculum



Eyelid speculum



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1236(1), July 4



An eyelid speculum is disclosed in the form of an annular bladder constructed of a resilient material. The annular bladder defines an interior chamber and the bladder is dimensioned to fit in between the upper and lower eyelids of an eye. An inflator is fluidly connected to the bladder chamber to selectively inflate the bladder. Thus, with the bladder positioned in between the upper and lower eyelid and then inflated, the bladder maintains the eyelids in an open position thus exposing the eye and maintaining a stable eye position for medical examination and/or treatment.
