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.

Siluron Xtra is a premium silicone oil with an Xtra portion of elasticity. The new Siluron range from Fluoron are a next generation of silicone oil with an innovative molecular design making them highly resistant to emulsification.
The first ready-to-use air gas mixture. Fluoron EasyGas C2F6 has an effective tamponade time of 15 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.
The first ready-to-use air gas mixture. Fluoron EasyGas C3F6 has an effective tamponade time of 30 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.
F6H8 serves as an endotamponade in complicated retinal detachments and as an intraoperative tool for
retinal surgery. Due to its significantly lower density compared to conventional perfluorocarbon liquids,
F6H8 offers enormous advantages particularly for retinal translocation as well as an excellent biocompatible
solvent for the removal of silicone oil residues.
