Hairspray for cryo !

Dear Editor,

The existing small (300 gins.) Cryolet cans, marketed by various manufacturers in India, costs anywhere around Rs. 300/- for the can only.

I have been using a hair spray, in place of the existing Cryolet cans A 300 gms can of this hair spray costs around Rs 35/- only.


After wiping the tip of a sterile cryo pencil dry, we hold it vertical with the open end up. Nozzle adaptor is attached to the can and this is placed on to the mouth of the cryo pencil up side down. The can is pressed on the rim of the pencil for 3 to 5 seconds Fill half of the pencil with the refrigerant The liquid boils, evaporating very fast and freezing the silver tip in a few seconds. The pencil is then ready for use.

The tip temperature attained and the cooling time is the same, both, in the conventional cryolet and in my hair spray cryolet I have used this hair spray cryolet in more than 50 cases of Cataract with equally good results Hair spray used : Beauty Queen, marketed by Aerosol, Vapi, Gujarat.
