Outstanding viscosity and unrivaled rheological properties

Thanks to our thirty years of know-how in hyaluronic acid transformation and a unique manufacturing process BOHUS has expertise in designing premium viscoelastics. Minivisc® Plus is the new state-of-the-art OVD displaying a superior cohesiveness.

  • Minivisc® Plus is composed of hyaluronic acid fibers containing the highest HA molecular weight available on the market
  • Thanks to the unique rheological properties, the capsular bag maintenance is maximized and the capsulorhexis is easy to perform
  • High cohesivity enables Minivisc® Plus to be quickly aspirated at the end of cataract procedures

Why Minivisc® Plus?

  • The unique manufacturing process enables a high viscosity and particular cohesive rheological properties to Minivisc® Plus
  • Minivisc® Plus offers surgeons outstanding optical clarity and space during the whole surgical procedure
  • With its specific pseudoplasticity and high molecular weight, Minivisc® Plus is easy to withdraw at the end of the surgery.
  • With a volume of 1ml/syringe, surgeons have enough product for the entire surgery and lubrication of the IOL cartridge.
