  • The industry standard in OVDs

William Fishkind, MD "HEALON GV creates space for a well controlled capsulorhexis and is easily removed at the end of the case without compromising the anterior chamber. Additionally, the efficiency of the Ellips FX technology gives me the confidence to use a greater viscosity OVD for my cases due to reduced power during phaco."
