The Ahmed ClearPath offers:

SURGICAL EFFICIENCY (Better Fit and Placement)

  • Model CP250 is a true single-quadrant device that fits between the muscles, eliminating the need to isolate them.
  • Model CP350 has a winged design with the plate surface positioned posteriorly, designed to avoid muscle attachment points.
  • Both models have a contour that is designed to naturally conform to the surface of the globe.

EASE OF USE (Better Accessibility and Visibility)

  • Suture points of the plate are positioned anteriorly versus other models on the market, providing easier access for implantation.

CONVENIENCE (Efficient packaging)

  • Both models include a preplaced 4 -inch 4-0 prolene ripcord suture and a pre-packaged 23G hypodermic needle for the convenience of the surgeon and OR staff during implantation.
