HIGH-CONTROL VISCOADAPTIVE

As a viscoadaptive OVD, the HEALON5® OVD combines the best features of both our dispersive and cohesive OVDs. Designed for safety and control during phacoemulsification and precision lens implantation, the HEALON5® OVD delivers outstanding protection every step of the way.

DUAL-PROPERTY

The HEALON5® OVD behaves as both a dispersive and cohesive.

  • Cohesive properties provide space creation and anterior chamber maintenance
  • Dispersive properties deliver outstanding endothelial cell protection during phaco
  • Helps to ensure safe and precise capsulorhexis,phacoemulsification1,2 and lens placement2
