The Morgan medi-FLOW Lens
Part Number: MT2000 (USA Only) or MT6673 (Outside USA)
The Morgan Lens is a medical device that provides the most effective means of ocular (eye) irrigation to treat many eye injuries. The Morgan Lens provides continuous lavage to the cornea and conjunctiva, floating on the irrigating solution and never physically touching the cornea. The irrigating solution provides instant relief to chemical or thermal burns and removes non-embedded foreign materials in the eye.
The Morgan Lens is standard equipment in over 90% of hospital emergency rooms in the United States. It is widely used by physicians, nurses, paramedics, and other medical personnel because it delivers a continuous flow of solution to the injured eye within seconds, which frees medical staff to treat other injuries or to transport the patient without interruption.
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

Morgan Lens PowerPoint Presentation
This PowerPoint Presentation covers uses and instructions for using the Morgan Lens.
While working at Bethlehem Steel, I had many opportunities to use the Morgan Lens. The employees frequently splashed solutions into their eyes. The Morgan Lens helped us irrigate their eyes promptly and efficiently. We could seat belt the employee/patient into the van, check his eyes, pop in the Morgan Lens, hook up the I.V. bag. While transporting him to the dispensary, his eyes were being irrigated. Prompt irrigation with the Morgan Lens in route to the dispensary helps prevent eye damage.

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)
