Bethesda, MD-A recently introduced high-molecular-weight, high-viscosity viscoelastic, UniVisc (CIBA Vision Surgical, Duluth, GA), performs well, is surgeon friendly, and seems to be a valuable addition to the surgical armamentarium. It is indicated for use to protect the corneal endothelium during cataract surgery, IOL implantation, and anterior segment surgical procedures.
