    About Sil-Ophtho, Heavy Viscosity

    • Heavy viscosity dimethylpolysiloxane (silicone oil)
    • Lubricant for ocular prosthetic
    • 15mL bottle

    Description (Rebecca's)

    As with the regular Sil-Ophtho, we were asked by a customer to stock this one, so here it is! Thicker version of the original. We recommend always trying the original first.

    See manufacturer's notes below for best uses. I would love to hear your feedback to help guide others on the best use of this product, so please post reviews! 

    SAFETY notice to our dry eye and scleral lens customers: Tempting though you might find it to buy up anything and everything on this site that comes in liquid form, *just* in case it helps your dry eye, please take my word for it that you do not want this one. It is not suitable for use on the cornea or on scleral lenses. 

    Description (Manufacturer's)

    SIL-OPHTHO is a medical grade silicone oil with a special viscosity used as a lubricant for your ocular prosthesis. This silicone lubricant is a valuable aid to prosthetic eye wearers. It helps control both irritation and discharge from the socket.

    Our thicker silicone lubricant is made to provide relief for those who live in dry climates, work outside, or when medium viscosity has not provided adequate relief.

    Sil-Ophtho-H not a good choice for me

    I ordered Sil-Ophtho-H for my scleral shell because I've been unable to procure my usual wetting solution. Unfortunately, this alternative has not proven to be a good choice for me.

    My occularist recommended saline but it's far too thin. I'm not giving up though, I'll still order a thinner solution until I find what works best for me or until my usual vendor, WRW is once again available.

    Hi there, thank you so much for posting the review! Very helpful. I am curious about what you had been using that was working so well as we'd be happy to try to stock it when it's available again.
