Training Materials

MorTan provides the following to help with initial training in the use of the Morgan Lens:

The Morgan Lens Training Tool and Competency Exam: a molded eye which allows “hands-on” practice of ocular irrigation and an exam that can be modified for use in your facility.

The Morgan Lens Instructional Video: a five-minute long mpeg video demonstrating the insertion and removal of the lens as well as providing general information on its use.

The Morgan Lens PowerPoint Presentationa 19-slide PowerPoint presentation with Speaker Notes showing the use of the Morgan Lens and providing additional information on chemical burns to the eye.

The Morgan Lens Instructions for Use Chart: a chart that provides step by step instructions on how to properly use the Morgan Lens.

White Papers: single page, printable sheets providing general information on ocular chemical burns, irrigating solutions, buffers, and the pediatric applications of the Morgan Lens)

Abstracts from articles: articles related to eye irrigation, chemical burns to the eye, use of the Morgan Lens, or other relevant information)

Sample protocols: links to on-line protocols plus a sample with suggestions on developing one for use with your organization)

Three Army soldiers were on their way to us following an explosion of an improvised device.  The driver had goggles on and suffered extensive facial trauma and all three had eye injuries from the debris that hit them.  We got bilateral Morgan Lenses in all three and flushed each with several liters of LR.  Followed with antibiotics, they were rebandaged and on an emergency air evacuation that evening.  These men were grateful for the care they received.  The technicians and physicians here are thankful that everyone knew what to do to get the lens system set up and running.  I am grateful to you for the opportunity to access the class online and ability to present it shortly after we arrived.  One of the others did have a corneal laceration that we could assess after flushing.  We feel confident that all will have the best outcomes thanks to the Morgan Lens use.


We also had a patient who experienced an electrical explosion (a generator) to his face.  We used Morgan Lenses to irrigate his eyes and sent him on an air evacuation flight to Germany.  He has since returned to duty and is doing well with minimal residual sight loss.

Why Use The Morgan Lens?

The Morgan Lens is used in 90% of hospital emergency departments in the USA and can be inserted in less than 20 seconds. There simply is no other "hands-free" method of eye irrigation. Nothing else frees medical personnel to treat other injuries or to transport the patient while irrigation is underway. Nothing is more effective at treating ocular chemical, thermal, and actinic burns or removing non-embedded foreign bodies, even when the patient's eyes are closed tightly. Its design makes it simple and straightforward to use so minimal training is required.
