Manufactured by Katena Products, Inc., a leader in ophthalmic surgical instrumentation, each instrument is based on Dr. Labor’s modifications. In addition, he has published numerous articles on a wide range of ophthalmic subjects and issues, and led or collaborated on key studies. He is one of a select few U.S. eye surgeons manufacturers such as Bausch & Lomb have chosen to evaluate new technologies.
