Why Viscotak?

Viscotak aids in extracapsular lens extraction to maintain the anterior chamber and to expand the capsular bag to facilitate insertion of a posterior chamber intraocular  lens.  Alternatively  air may be used to  maintain  the  anterior  chamber,  but  it  may escape  with  sudden  flattening  of  the  anterior chamber with  the risk  of  the lens touching  the corneal endothelium thus affecting the integrity  of  the  cornea.

Viscotak also provides endothelial protection, epithelial coating, and lubrication for IOL injectors. Viscotak is a dispersive Viscoelastic that sustains the endothelium ultimately protecting it along with the corneal cells from instrumental trauma. Enables better manipulation and movement inside the anterior segment along with Visual clarity resulting in precision in the surgical procedure without much damage.

Hypromellose (hpmc 2%)

  • Non toxic and Non irritating
  • Viscoelastic polymer with dispersive property (9,000-10,000 cps)
  • Affordable in comparison with alternates (Sodium Hyaluronate)
  • Hydrophilic in nature and gets removed through irrigation with ease



Cataract Surgery, Refractive Lens Surgery, Phaco IOL Insertion And Explantation, IOL Exchange, Cases Of Posterior Capsule Breakage, Anterior Vitrectomy, And Corneal Transplantations, Administered pre and post lens extraction.

As per the requirement of the procedure undertaken.

  • It is mandatory to remove the entire solution with the help of irrigation/aspiration.
  • Store in a cool and dry place.
  • Discard solution if it is found turbid or if particles are noticed.
  • The solution is for single use only.
  • Protect the solution from light.



As per the Literary data, Viscoelastic tends to increase IOP.
