Oxane 1300 and Oxane 5700 silicone oils are
highly purified and provide a prolonged
endotamponade of
constant volume.

    1. Clinical Benefits
      • Heavier than water endotamponade allows effective
        tamponade of inferior and posterior breaks
      • Medium range viscosity allows easy automatic
      • Like standard Silicone Oil, its interfacial tension
        allows intraocular tamponade: formation of a sole
        intraocular bubble prevents fluids passage through
        retinal breaks allowing progressive reattachment.
      • Distinguishable refractive index compared to
        irrigating solution and
      • PFCL favouring excellent visibility during
    2. Patient Benefits
      • Improved comfort as postoperative face-down positioning is not required
      • Allows for more aesthetic 12 o’clock iridectomy
      • Avoids passage of Silicone Oil in the anterior chamber in phakic or pseudophakic
      • Potentially diminished risk of postoperative anterior and inferior reproliferation
    3. Indications
      • Inferior and posterior retinal breaks
      • • RD complicated by severe PVR, penetrating trauma, giant tears
      • • Inferior retinectomy for anterior PVR
