About Us

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.
