• We developed a new illuminated disposable retinal pick system for use in vitreoretinal surgery. These instruments facilitate bimanual dissection of proliferative tissue while allowing ocular endoillumination. We have found these instruments to be helpful in the management of complicated retinal detachment due to proliferative diabetic retinopathy or proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
