A pair of stainless-steel, dull-finish, hooks were devised for maintaining positive traction on loops of 000000 chromic absorbable surgical sutures (gut) in preplaced corneoscleral sutures (Fig. 1).

A new speculum is presented for use with 0000 black eyelid sutures, which are secured by a small hemostat next to the notched blade on the speculum. The small points on the inferior surface of the speculum are useful in maintaining position on draping towels (Figs. 2 and 3).

The instruments were made by Storz Instrument Co., 4570 Audubon Ave., St. Louis 10.
