The simple solution for oil residues in vitreoretinal surgery. It’s unique amphiphilic properties dissolve silicone oil efficiently. It removes silicone oil residues and “sticky oil” as well as rinsing silicone oil-polluted IOLs. Can also be used in glaucoma surgery for clearing Schlemm’s canal from oil residues.
GEUDER’s WashOut solution F4H5® won the 2015 Innovation Award – “The Ophthalmologist”
F4H5® is a semifluorinated alkane that is similar to F6H8 but more amphiphilic, making it a superior solvent for silicone oil. The new WashOut does not form any reactive structures, is biocompatible and also degrades silicone oil even in BSS at any mixing ratios. A key property of F4H5® is the ability to remove residual oil completely, avoiding visual and toxic complications such as glaucoma, inflammation, fibrosis or proliferative vitreoretinopathy. The new WashOut can be used in the anterior segment of the eye to clean IOLs and flush other anterior structures, as well as in the posterior segment to remove residual silicone oil and sticky oil.

The unique heavy silicone oil with a molecular design endotamponade that is highly resistant to emulsification. It’s medium viscosity is ideal for inferior pathology.
Brilliant Peel Dual Dye provides retinal surgeons with a non-toxic dye for intense and selective staining of ILM, ERM and vitreous remnants. Fast sinking, maximised contact surface with tissue due to it’s higher density provides safer peeling due to distinct staining of the membrane.
Brilliant Peel heavy dye was developed for specific staining of the inner limiting membrane (ILM). Specific staining of the ILM allows it to be clearly differentiated from the underlying retinal tissue and the epiretinal membranes. The surgically demanding removal of the ILM thus becomes easier and safer.
The first ready-to-use air gas mixture. Fluoron SF6 has an effective tamponade time of 6 days. It is a quick and easy application through a sterile, pre-filled system. It is safe to use because of the precise, non-expanding mixture ratio in each syringe.
