A broad spectrum of choice, so that you can fill in every aspect of your decision yourself to achieve your ideal solution.

Product overview 

Regardless of the appearance

There are two main classes of viscoelastic materials, cohesive and dispersive, and they behave differently.

  • Cohesive OVDs are substances containing long chain molecules and are therefore characterized by high molecular weight and high viscosity. These resources tend to preserve space when there is minimal movement.
  • Dispersive OVDs exhibit the opposite properties, as they have a lower viscosity and the ability to adhere and coat.

Other intermediate forms, such as coheso-dispersive OVDs, are designed to adapt to the different stages of the surgery. At rest it assumes cohesive properties (e.g. during capsulorhexis), and under stress it behaves dispersively (e.g. during phacoemulsification).

 

Regardless of the origin

With a few exceptions, a large part of the current visco-elastics (OVDs) are based on HPMC (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose) or hyaluronic acid (HA) of animal origin (rooster comb) or bacterial/bio-fermented (Streptococcus)

 

pehavisco

blue

Pe-Ha-Blue® PLUS | Albomed

Pe-Ha-Blue® PLUS combines the outstanding viscoelastic properties of Pe-Ha-Luron® F with trypan blue. In addition to the common functions of viscoelastic solutions, this combination also increases the contrast for the surgeon, which leads to more safety during the procedure. Pe-Ha-Blue® PLUS is provided as a sterile product in a ready-to-use syringe.

microvisc

Microvisc | Bohus BioTech

Our Microvisc product line includes the Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (OVDs) Microvisc, Microvisc plus and Microvisc phaco. The products are used as surgical aids in mainly cataract and refractive surgery. Microvisc OVDs are based on naturally high-molecular hyaluronic acid from a biological source. Thanks to the high molecular weight, the products have a cohesive nature, which means that they hold together well, add height and are easy to aspirate.
