The Singer Triport can be used as a stabilizer at the limbus and conjunctiva opposite the incision location. Once a paracentesis has been fashioned, it functions as an extremely effective globe fixation device with ‘tongue’ and ‘teeth’. The tongue is inserted into the tunnel and the teeth are in contact with the sclera/limbus/conjunctiva. Unlike fixation forceps, the Singer Triport does not crush tissue or cause subconjunctival hyphemas.
The Singer Triport was designed with Jack Singer, MD (deceased) in the late 1990’s.
