Optometrists are taking appointments with predominantly elderly or otherwise vulnerable patients. They need a face shield that works with the magnification headgear they wear while working on people's eyes. We have designed a shield that mounts directly to their headgear, and only needs a top and bottom 3D printed part to shape the face shield.

This project fits the

  • Heine Omega 180, made in Germany
  • Iridex Indirect Ophthalmoscope by Heine- with cord
  • Heine Omega-cordless

It will not fit the Keeler brand.

Maker Nexus is no longer active with this project. This page documents how to make these shields so that others can benefit from the work we did.

How to Assemble the Shield

3D Print Directions


These need to be printed in PETg. Other filament types are not acceptable.

  • Each shield also needs a bottom stiffener. The same as used on our regular face shields. The file can be found here

Laser Cut Parts

This shield has specific cut outs to mount on ophthalmologist head gear.
