    The pain relief OVD

    VISTHESIA® is the first and only OVD that offers an ophthalmic viscoelastic and an ancillary anaesthetic combined; providing more comfort for your patient,especially during prolonged procedures.


    VISTHESIA Topical

    • The ancillary lidocaine ensures comfort for the patient at the start of surgery
    • The preoperative topical application with sodium hyaluronate
    • coats and hydrates the epithelial cells, to support clear vision into the eye
    • minimizes the need for additional hydration during surgery


    VISTHESIA Intracameral cohesive OVD

    • Maintains anterior chamber space
    • Provides endothelial protection and pupil dilation for routine or complex cataract cases
    • Ensures even dispersion of lidocaine throughout the eye to all tissue
    • Precise delivery of 1% lidocaine combined into one step saves time and preparation of a separate intracameral anesthetic

    VISTHESIA – “Engineered for simplicity”

    VISTHESIA 1.0% and VISTHESIA 1.5% are not for sale in the UK and Portugal.
