Removal of heavy silicone oil from the posterior surface of the natural lens

DOI: 10.3207/4206714668

Apparently not only silicone but rarely also the natural lens provides a surface for strong adherence of silicone oil, in this case heavy silicone oil (Densiron®). The removal is possible by a solvent for silicone oil: F6H8 or F4H5, two semifluorinated fluorocarbons. The solvent plus the fluid jet manage to remove the oil form the surface of the natural lens.
