Beaver® has been manufacturing high-quality, trusted surgical blades since 1932. Beaver-Visitec International provides a wide variety of Beaver® knives and blades for ophthalmic and specialty surgical procedures.

Beaver® Mini-Blades

Advanced Beaver® Mini-Blades are designed to enhance control and precision in a broad range of surgical procedures, while maintaining the quality customers have relied on for more than 75 years.

Advanced grindless manufacturing technology ensures consistent sharpness and blade geometry. New features are designed to make Beaver® Mini-Blades easier and safer to use:

  • Patented tip design simplifies assembly, threading directly onto the handle—with no chuck collet required. Works with existing Beaver-Visitec handles. Tips are color-coded for easy identification of blade type.
  • New packaging tray with integrated finger-holds allows safer assembly, with no direct contact between fingers and blade or tip.

Beaver® Mini-Blades are available in a range of familiar blade sizes and geometries.

Beaver® Xstar® Safety Knives

Beaver-Visitec International places safety-engineered, single-use knives in the hands of cataract surgeons around the world.

Beaver® Safety Knife

Beaver® Xstar® Safety Knives feature a specially designed, integrated retractable shield that protects the blade in procedure and handling. Beaver® Safety Cataract Knives are designed to minimize the risk of accidental surgical blade injuries that could occur during all phases of a surgical procedure: before use, during passing, between steps of the procedure, after use, or during disposal. The shield is activated by the user through a spring-assisted slider that provides tactile and audible feedback in both the shielded and unshielded positions.

The knife is conveniently offered as a single-use product, eliminating the need for special care that is associated with reusable products. Beaver® Xstar® Safety Knives are available in slit, crescent and sideport blades in a wide range of sizes.

The Xstar® Blade technology is based on a proprietary grindless process for manufacturing surgical blades, for exceptional sharpness and consistency. Our single and double bevel blade geometry allows the cataract surgeon to create the desired incision architecture, whether the incision is scleral or corneal. Request more information
