Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (OVDs)

MoorVisc® Ophthalmic Solutions

Moorfields Pharmaceuticals have extended its ophthalmic portfolio by introducing a new range of viscoelastics called MoorVisc®. These products were launched at the Royal College of Ophthalmology annual meeting in May 2012. The range consists of three pre-filled syringes.

OVDs are used during surgery in order to maintain and preserve space in the anterior chamber, and displace, stabilise, coat and protect cell tissue. They are transparent, gel-like substances that have both viscous and elastic properties and are essential tools for the anterior segment surgeon. OVDs show physical characteristics of both fluids and solids which vary with respect to their viscosity, pseudo-plasticity, elasticity and coat-ability.

The range will offer a comprehensive choice of viscosity for every need the clinician may have during cataract surgery and other procedures, from a highly dispersive HPMC to a selection of two cohesive Sodium Hyaluronate products.

This is the most recent product launch from Moorfields Pharmaceuticals, a division of the renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. In recent years Moorfields Pharmaceuticals has been developing a portfolio of ophthalmic licensed medicines, as well as specials, and are widely trusted by ophthalmologists in the UK.


The Range

With the benefit of being supplied in pre-filled syringes, MoorVisc® provides the surgeon with a choice of three products that deliver different viscoelastic characteristics suitable for the varying requirements needed during surgical procedures. MoorVisc® comes in a range of three products:

 - MoorVisc® HPMC 2% (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose)

 - MoorVisc® Plus HA 1.8% (Sodium Hyaluronate)
