The only "hands-free" emergency eye irrigation device.
The Morgan Lens Delivery Set
Part Number: MT202
The Morgan Lens Delivery Set makes using the Morgan Lens even easier by allowing the simultaneous irrigation of both eyes. Instead of wasting valuable time and money on separate IV setups, the Morgan Lens Delivery Set may be attached to one or two Morgan Lenses. Within seconds, relief is on its way to your patient, allowing the assessment and treatment of other injuries while ocular therapy is underway.
Ocular injuries are often bilateral, but the pain in one eye may mask the pain in the other, or nerve damage may have created an analgesic effect (especially with alkali burns). Unless the second eye is completely pain-free and no pathology is discovered, immediate irrigation should be started in both eyes.
The following equipment is recommended for bilateral eye irrigation using the Morgan Lens:
- Two Morgan Lenses (part number MT2000-USA or MT6673-Outside-USA)–one per eye
- Topical ocular anesthetic (if available)
- One Morgan Lens Delivery Set (part number MT202)
- One bag of irrigating solution (MorTan recommends lactated Ringer’s or Hartmann’s Solution)
- Two Medi-Ducts (part number MT63)-one per eye–or towels, blue pads, or another fluid collection device
|Part Name||The Morgan Lens Delivery Set|
|Quantity Per Box||6|
Please note that Morgan Lenses must be ordered separately–the Delivery Set (MT202) replaces a standard IV set and contains the tubing, spike and drip chamber, and clamps to allow one or two Morgan Lenses to be attached to a single bag of irrigating solution. Morgan Lenses are not included when ordering the MT202.

Fact Sheet - Buffer Solutions in Ocular Irrigation
This fact sheet contains information on buffer solutions, how they work, and why they are better for eye irrigation.
Morgan Lens PowerPoint Presentation
This PowerPoint Presentation covers uses and instructions for using the Morgan Lens.
The quality and effectiveness of the Morgan Lens speaks for itself. I manage an Emergency Department in a rural area with minimal staffing and the Morgan Lens system is equivalent to having an additional staff member because it frees the RN to do other things while the Morgan Lens system does its job.

Thanks for the opportunity to sing the praises of the Morgan Lens! Those of us who have been in the field for a while wonder what we ever did without them! We find two general uses for the lenses. One is for contact irritation: most typically, splashes. After local anesthetic, for ease of insertion, the lenses fit comfortably on patients of all ages and provide gentle and thorough irrigation of irritant substances. We have many cases of this type. The second most common use is for patients show suffer multiple injuries due to automobile accidents, major trauma, burns, falls, etc. Not only does the lens thoroughly irrigate the eye, removing most or all of the debris that has accumulated, it more importantly frees up the nurse's hands so that she can perform other lifesaving functions. Quite frankly, eye irrigation was treated as "the bottom of the list" often because other patient's other injuries were more devastating with higher morbidity and mortality. Particularly in the burn patient, the soothing effect of the irrigation and potential to prevent infection or further injury, make it an easy to use, valuable asset for patient care.Registered Nurse (Montana)
