Vetrix® BioSIS For Ophthalmology

Corneal Ulcers are painful injuries that can be caused by anything from pawing to bee stings, the scratch of a stick or bacterial infection. Fortunately, Vetrix® BioSIS ECM Ocular Discs provide an alternative to traditional healing for uses in veterinary ophthalmology. Extensively researched and proven for use in corneal tissue repair, Vetrix® BioSIS ECM is used by university and veterinary specialists across the globe.

Vetrix® BioSIS ECM Ocular Discs provide an alternative to traditional healing for uses in veterinary ophthalmology.

Our BioSIS products provide a scaffold for native cells to repair the damaged cornea. A naturally occurring matrix, this bioscaffold provides a natural healing environment.

Vetrix® BioSIS ECM Ocular 15mm Discs conveniently come in packages of 4 discs, restoring native tissue to ophthalmic wound sites. After hydration, each disc may be sutured directly to the cornea. Use tack sutures to secure the Ocular Disc to the bulbar conjunctiva, via tarsorrhaphy, or nictitating membrane flap.
