Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (OVDS)

Veterinary Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (OVDs)



The function of ophthalmic viscoelastic devices (OVDs) include the stabilization of the anterior chamber during capsulorhexis and IOL implantation, and the protection of the endothelium during phacoemulsification, irrigation and aspiration.

I-MED Pharma’s proprietary line of Veterinary OVD’s is intended for use as a viscosurgical-aid in various veterinary AS surgical procedures.  They are indicated whenever protection and support of delicate cells and tissues are needed in ophthalmic veterinary procedures.

Pioneers in the ophthalmic viscoelastics market, I-MED Animal Health was the first company in the world to offer a viscoadaptive OVD, I-VISC® Phaco. As phacoemulsification techniques have evolved, so has I-MED’s OVD expertise. Today, we are the only company to offer a specially formulated OVD for veterinary use, the cohesive/dispersive, I-VISC® Vet.   Sold with cannulae.
