The First Viscous Dispersive
DisCoVisc® OVD is a single OVD designed for the entire cataract procedure. The first viscous dispersive, DisCoVisc® OVD provides superior endothelial protection, space maintenance, ease of movement, and ease of removal.
Go Further with One Syringe Than Ever Before
With DisCoVisc® OVD, one syringe is all you need—from the first incision through implantation. The key is Chondroitin Sulfate.
The One OVD Designed for the Entire Surgery
How far can one OVD take you? In a series of randomized, controlled trials, DisCoVisc® OVD rated highest for both performance and overall satisfaction. The findings, listed below, are available in the product insert.
FDA Study: DisCoVisc® OVD vs. Healon* OVD
The FDA compared DisCoVisc® OVD with Healon* OVD in a randomized, observer-masked, multi-center clinical trial.1 The trial tested each of the OVDs’ properties during cataract extraction and IOL implantation.
249 patients (128 DisCoVisc® OVD and 121 Healon* OVD) were evaluated for safety and efficacy.
Dispersive and Cohesive Properties See More
In surgery, your OVD must have the right properties at the right time. DisCoVisc® OVD was tested at 3 phases of cataract surgery.
During Capsulorhexis, DisCoVisc® OVD was described as having dispersive properties in over 78% of cases.
Viscoelastic Properties During Capsulorhexis
During phacoemulsification, DisCoVisc® OVD was described as having dispersive properties in over 88% of cases.
Viscoelastic Properties During Phacoemulsification
In contrast, during removal, DisCoVisc® OVD was described as having cohesive properties in over 87% of cases.
Viscoelastic Properties During Removal
Space MaintenanceSee More
How well does DisCoVisc® OVD maintain space in the anterior chamber? DisCoVisc® OVD was tested at 3 phases of cataract surgery.
Space maintenance was statistically superior during Capsulorhexis.
Anterior Chamber and Dome Maintenance During Anterior Capsulotomy
Space maintenance was statistically superior during phacoemulsification.
Anterior Chamber Depth/Dome Maintenance During Phacoemulsification
Space maintenance was statistically superior during removal.
Protection, Visualization and Overall See More
See how fellow physicians rated each OVD on visualization and overall satisfaction.
DisCoVisc® OVD was statistically superior to Healon* for visualization during the procedure.
Regardless of preference for cohesive or dispersive, surgeons were satisfied with the performance of DisCoVisc® OVD in over 96% of cases.
Satisfaction with Viscoelastic Performance
For optimized solutions in a single syringe, choose the OVD designed for the entire procedure.
