A new wooden armrest has been released by Louis Stone Optical to help keep hands steady during slit lamp examinations.

Manufactured by Oculus, the Elder Wood armrest is made of two pieces of smooth wood and utilises a subtle concave surface designed to cradle an elbow as you hold up a fundoscopy lens to a patient’s eye.

The base of the armrest can be removed to take up less room, but when attached the lower studded surface provides a more stable grip. The cylindrical, wine cork shaped product has a natural look and would look at home matched with any décor.
