Slit lamp shields
Santen UK Limited is supplying slit lamp shields, also known as breath shields, free of charge to healthcare organisations in the UK and Ireland during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The breath shield aims to create a barrier between healthcare professionals and their patients during the routine slit lamp eye examination, which typically involves both parties being in close proximity to one another. The shield is a piece of protective equipment that supports the physical distancing measures in place due to the pandemic.
- Please note that slit lamp shields are not proven to prevent the transmission and spread of COVID-19.
- Slit lamp shields distributed by Santen UK will be disclosed as Medical and Educational Goods & Services (MEGS) to recipient healthcare organisations
