Dispersive Solution

Supreme is used to:

  • coat ocular structures during cataract surgery: in the initial part, during capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification, and during ultrasound
  • protect corneal endothelium in an eye where endothelium pathology is suspected


Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Device

SmartVisc is a cohesive, sterile, highly purified, non-inflammatory, sodium hyaluronate viscoelastic solution with high molecular weight. it is used to create space, for example, when the anterior chamber is shallow, or when the surgeon requires a higher pressure in the anterior chamber compared to the pressure in the posterior chamber.
