Morgan Lens

Saves time, saves eyes...and saves money.

The Morgan Lens is standard equipment in 95% of hospital emergency rooms.

Dr. David Baehren has written a wonderful tribute to ER nurses that everyone should read. We can't think of a better way to say thank you to ER nurses, and, with his permission, we are reprinting his article here.

Loran B. Morgan, M.D. developed the Morgan Lens during his third tour as a volunteer physician in Vinh Long, Vietnam. Many of the serious eye cases, he noticed, began as simple infections that had not received adequate treatment.  Proper care of eye injuries requires both protection of the eye from irritation by the eyelid and the constant delivery of sterile fluids and/or medication to the eye – neither of which were available to Dr. Morgan at the time.

"You couldn't expect a nurse to keep coming back to put in eye drops as often as they were needed,” he explained.  Thus, he developed the Morgan Lens, the most widely used method of ocular irrigation today.

A graduate of the University of Minnesota Medical School, Battalion Surgeon during World War II, specialist in ophthalmology and Fellow of the International and American Colleges of Surgeons, Dr. Morgan enjoyed a long and impressive career, saving thousands of patient’s eyes all over the world.  And, thanks to his battlefield invention, his work will continue to do so for generations to come.


The Morgan Lens, the Morgan Lens Delivery Set, and all of MorTan's packaging materials are not made with natural rubber latex.
