Phacodyne is the natural choice for superior staining in cataract surgery.

Kemin has developed safe and efficacious intraocular dyes, which offer
an array of targeted staining solutions for use in ophthalmic surgeries.
Our proprietary dyes utilize the intrinsic staining capability of lutein*,
a natural dye molecule, more widely known for its antioxidant
properties in the human retina.1-2

What does Phacodyne do?
• Stains the anterior lens capsule in cataract surgery
• Provides optimal contrast between the anterior lens
capsule and the lens tissue
• Facilitates problem-free removal of the anterior
lens capsule
• Allows surgeons to visualize the entire anterior
lens capsule in the absence of red reflex

for cataract surgery?

• Intense green color optimal for staining contrast
• Formulated with natural lutein and minimal levels of trypan blue
• Unquestionable safety and efficacy demonstrated in a clinical trial
