Welcome to Collton Hailsham Ltd

We manufacture a wide range of Ophthalmic Surgical Instruments – Forceps, Needleholders, Scissors, Speculae, etc. We can offer mirror finish or matt finish on certain instruments to suit your individual requirements. All the instruments we supply are made in the United Kingdom from top quality materials. Quality is not compromised by our lower prices. Our Instruments are guaranteed for 10 years from date of purchase, subject to correct use.

Collton Hailsham Ltd. was formed in July 1999, following the decision by Dixey Instruments Ltd’ to close their factory and cease production of Ophthalmic Surgical Instruments.

The Instrument makers, all skilled craftsmen who, for well over thirty years. were employed by Dixey Instruments Ltd. set up their own Company – Collton.

The Company’s aim is to manufacture top quality, precision instruments, using the best materials – and sell them at competitive prices.

Only certified medical grade Stainless Steel and Titanium. conforming to British Standard specifications is used – and all raw materials are fully documented and traceable.

We have very strict quality inspection procedures in place, and each instrument is fully checked at every stage of manufacture.

Patterns and Drawings of every instrument and detailed procedures of the method of manufacture are maintained, together with a fully recorded traceability system.

`Collton’ conforms to the requirements of the Medical Devices Regulations 1994 and is authorised to mark its instruments with the `CE’ mark and is ISO 9001:2000 Registered.

To keep costs down, we have no Catalogue – but if you can’t find a particular instrument in our Price List, please contact us, as we can make most things and often have an equivalent pattern of our own.

We are also able to manufacture ’special’ instruments, from drawings, etc., on request.

If you need help or advice we will be pleased to assist you.
