The use of perfluorohexyloctane as a heavier-than-water tamponade for long-term use is limited by its tendency to dispersion and associated intraocular inflammation. Double-filling with silicone oil and F6H8 produces a united, two-layer bubble, appearing as a single bubble. This has been proposed as a method of improving the utility of F6H8 as a tamponade.(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM As no single tamponade agent yet fulfils all the requirements of a long term inferior tamponade, attempts have been made to mix tamponade materials. This study investigated perfluorohexyloctane (F(6)H(8)) and silicone oil solutions designed to take advantage of the high specific gravity and interfacial tension of the F(6)H(8) and the high(More)
