Advantages of Black Eye
Safe from Contamination
The use of India ink or methylene blue can be contaminated easily during the preparation or use of the injection solution. As the Black Eye is supplied sterile and disposable, you can be safe from the danger of contamination of the patient.
The India ink for industrial use contains micro-organisms, heavy metals and dangerous chemicals like phenol, ammonia, etc. The Black Eye is made of only safe and biocompatible materials which are passed through the cytotoxicity, sensitization and irritation tests by ISO 10993 standards.
As the methylene blue or Indocyanine green dye, it is soluble in the body around a couple of days. However, the main materials of the Black Eye are insoluble pigments, they remain in the body as markings permanently.
Easy to Use
It would be very complicated and irritating to use the India ink, methylene blue or Indocyanine etc. The use of the Black Eye is just to take from the package and connect it to the injection needle.
