Silicone Oil

Silicone Oils 1000cSt/2000cSt/5000cSt in syringes


The D.O.R.C. Silicone oil is a purified silicone oil which allows for a maximum interfacial tension and
minimizes interactions between tissues, cells and endo-tamponades media. The physical properties
include a combination of specific gravity, refractive index and surface tension. The choice of viscosity
offers an optimum balance between easy injection and a stable temporary tamponade.


Viscosity: 1000-1500 / 5000-5900 mPas.
Specific Gravity: 0,97 g/cm3 at 25°C.
Surface tension: 21 mN/m against air.
Interfacial tension: 40 mN/m against water.
Packaging: SIL-1000 / SIL-5000: 1 vial of 10ml.

Indications for use

D.O.R.C. SIL-1000/SIL-2000/SIL-5000 is indicated for use as a short or longer term tamponade of the retina. In particular, the primary indications for SIL-1000/SIL-2000/SIL-5000 are the surgical management of: • Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy (PVR). • Retinal Detachment caused by Trauma. • Giant Tears. • Diabetic Traction Detachment. • Retinal detachment caused by Cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis. A secondary indication of SIL-1000, SIL-2000 and SIL-5000 is the surgical management of ROP related traction detachments.

Since D.O.R.C. launched their Silicone oil 2000, I have switched from the 5000 cSt silicone oil to the 2000 cSt. The main reason for switching is the fact that both - injection and extraction - are much easier and faster with the Silicone oil 2000.

Heavy Silicone Oil Extraction cannula 23G (1272.HSE06) is the result of collaboration between D.O.R.C. and VR surgeons - showing how small product enhancements can make life easier for VR surgeons.
