Ophthalmic surgical devices for cataract surgery
Used as surgical aids in ophthalmic anterior and posterior segment surgeries including intra/extra cataract extraction with or without implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL), intraocular lens implantation, keratoplasty / corneal transplantation surgery, glaucoma filtering surgery, and surgical procedurs to reattach the retina. ViscAid has also been used successfully as a vitreum replacement after vitrectomy and retinal detachment surgery. Due to its lubricating, transparent and viscoelastic properties, ViscAid aids in maintaining a deep chamber and visibility during anterior segment surgery. While allowing for more efficient manipulation and implantation with less trauma to the corneal endhotelium and other surrounding ocular tissues, ViscAid may also be used to coat an intraocular lens as wll as the tips of surrounding tissues are protected from possible damage arising from surgical instrumentation during ophthalmic surgeries. ViscAid also preserves tissue integrity and good visibility when used to fill the anterior or prosterior segments of the eye following open sky procedures.
Hyaluronic Sodium 15 mg
For Cataract Surgery and IOL Implantation
The sufficient amount of ViscAid is slowly infused through a needle or cannula into the anterior chamber to replace the aqueous humor before any instrument is introduced in to the eye. Filling the anterior chamber and the capsular bag facilitates in the bag implantation. The protective effect of ViscAid is an aid is optimized when the injection is performed prior to cataract extraction and insertion of IOL and is effective for both intra– and extra– capsular cataract procedures. ViscAid may be applied to the IOL prior to insertion. Additional ViscAid can be injected as required during surgery to replace any loss to facilitate surgical manipulation.
