Visualization is critical when performing cataract surgery. This is particularly true for achieving and maintaining a clear view of the anterior capsule. During most routine cases with a bright red reflex, there is little or no difficulty seeing the anterior capsule when performing the capsulorhexis and then later during the procedure observing the edge of the capsulorhexis. However, a variety of situations may interfere with the surgeon's ability to clearly see the capsule.
Silicone oils are important tools in vitreoretinal surgery because they have the ability to displace aqueous humor from the retinal surface, maintaining the adhesion between retina and retinal pigment epithelium. To understand this capability, it is important to know the silicone oil characteristics. Herein, we report first on the main chemical-physical proprieties and then we review the clinical applications of the current silicone oil which is lighter than water with particular reference to their indications with small gauge vitrectomy. Finally, we describe the surgical techniques to inject and remove this type of silicone oil.
Sterixx plastic sterilization trays are manufactured to provide optimal structural integrity, thereby ensuring that the trays last a higher number of sterilization cycles. The effectiveness of our trays is enhanced by superior design which guarantees proper reach of the sterilizing agent used. Silicone Mats and holders allow for proper storage and sterilization of the medical instruments while ensuring maximum space utilization. The amber colored lid facilitates easy viewing of the instruments. Sterixx sterilization trays are designed to suit all means of sterilization including Steam, dry heat, Ethylene Oxide (EO), chemical and Gamma.

1. Intended Use:
In cataract surgery, the Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Device (OVD) is a material with viscoelastic properties. It is used to create and maintain space, to protect intra ocular tissues and to manipulate tissues in the anterior segment of the human eye.
