VisionBlue®: Trusted for over 6 million cataract surgeries since launch. The only trypan blue stain for anterior use approved by the FDA.

Trusted PURITY and PERFORMANCE

KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING IN THE EYE

 

• VisionBlue® is the only trypan blue stain for anterior use approved by the FDA.

• No confirmed adverse events reported since launch in 2004.

• Highly purified trypan blue with lowest recorded levels of mono-azo dye – known for carcinogenic properties in medical use.

• High purification reduces the reported TASS risk from lower purity generic trypan blue use.

• Batch level HPLC testing and Certificate of Analysis provides purity assurance and traceability for every lot produced.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE

 

• Assuring the complete, circular capsulorhexis required for a safe phaco-emulsification procedure.

• High success rates in performing anterior capsulotomy in cases of mature or brunescent cataracts.

• Enhanced contrast between the capsulorhexis rim, instrumentation and the adjacent nucleus.

• Reduced risk of radial capsule tears and helps ensure a stable intraocular lens platform.

• Effective and safe recovery of ‘lost’ capsulorhexis edge.

• Improved efficacy in performing capsulorhexis in cases of narrow pupil and pediatric cataracts.

• Improves visualization in cases of vitreous hemorrhage and hazy or scarred cornea.

Reviews & Testimonials

Mr. Sathish Srinivasan, Consultant Corneal Surgeon at University Hospital Ayr, Scotland.

I have used VisionBlue® for over 10 years and in at least 350 cases, I greatly appreciate the staining performance of the dye for dense and complex cataract cases or where the capsulorrhexis is compromised. As an FDA approved stain, I also trust the purity of VisionBlue® and know I am minimizing any risk to endothelial cells.

Over the last 12 years, I’ve never regretted using VisionBlue®, but I’ve certainly had cases where I’ve regretted NOT using it. It continues to be an essential component in my surgical toolbox.

All surgeons should be concerned about the purity of the stain they use for any anterior segment surgery. Low purity dyes were associated with severe inflammatory response and can compromise the endothelial cells during surgery and pose an unacceptable risk to patient outcomes. In my view, surgeons should use an FDA-approved dye like VisionBlue® or demand a purity analysis if generic trypan blue is used.

I utilize the safest and most cutting edge cataract surgery technologies. Even with the latest microscope technology, VisionBlue® is a critical aid in the ophthalmologist’s armamentarium. VisionBlue® can turn the advanced white mature cataract into a routine case. I will not enter an operating room unless available on stand-by.

My preferred staining approach in cataract surgery is to use VisionBlue®. ...I look for maximum purity in an ophthalmic staining liquid so that I can be confident that the injected vital dye will not damage the corneal endothelium.

My experience and analysis of competitor dyes highlights that surgeons need to check the quality and consistency of the dye they use for hard cataract cases, It cannot be assumed that all trypan blue stains are the same.
