Slit lamp shields

Santen EMEA is supplying slit lamp shields, also known as breath shields, free of charge* to healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations across Europe, Middle East and Africa during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Breathe shield

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.  

*Healthcare professionals and/or healthcare organisations only located in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Uzbekistan are eligible to receive a free slit lamp shield.
