SKU: SILH Category:

A heavy viscosity silicone lubricant made specifically for artificial eyes. Heavy viscosity is thicker for severe dryness or more extreme conditions. Occasionally, artificial eye wearers will experience dryness, irritation, increased drainage or difficulty blinking. This is especially true of hot, cold, windy, dusty or air-conditioned environments. All of these conditions tend to evaporate the moisture from the front of the prosthesis.

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Heavy Viscosity Formulation
  • Long Lasting

    I had a tendency to believe that the only place I could obtain these drops was through the eye clinic that I go to. I got on line and found that you carry the exact same type of drops that I need, and at a cheaper price. Once ordered, the drops arrived in just a few days. I am very impressed and plan to continue doing business with you in the future. Thanks!!

    This lasts a LONG time! And it gets rid of the HORRIBLE consistent non-ability to blink, because of dryness, which leads to fire burning eyelids! This does it’s job AND more for the price!

    This stop burns my eye lids, however there doesn’t seem to be anything else on the market to keep my prosthesis lubricated. I had radiation and my tear ducts no longer function. I used restasis for years hoping that it would help! No such luck. I used occu-glide for years without any stinging. Alas it is no longer available. Now I feel the burn!

    Scott Harrod

    It’s simply too thick. I thought it was going to be similar to the Ocu-glide but it’s much thicker. It was touted as a good replacement for the Ocu-glide but it’s really much different. I’ll keep looking.

  40. Rated 5 out of 5


    Silo works wonders. I place a drop of heavy and a drop of medium viscosity on my artificial eye for lubrication. This combo works great for me!

    Advertised as comparable to Optiglide but I used Optiglide for years and this product doesn’t compare. My advice to any with a prosthetic eye is to try some other viscosity.

    I’m adjusting to this product after my previous product is no longer available. I have used the Heavy drops, and will try the thin drops soon. Would prefer a thin, clear, plastic bottle, as it’s tricky to squeeze and know that I’ve actually dispensed the product.
    Thank you.

    The Heavy Viscosity lubricant has helped my dry eye problem significantly. While other lubricants wore off in much shorter amounts of time, the heavy viscosity lubricant provides more comfort for longer periods.

    I needed to find a replacement for my prosthetic lubricant and found Erickson Labs Northwest. After having used the Sil-Ophtho medium, I realized tha the heavy would be best for my eye. I sent a check and received the goods within a week. I have used the Sil-Ophtho heavy tonight and it is perfect.
    Thank you

    I think next time I should try the medium viscosity – a little too thick for me. Will probably take me 2 years to use this up, tho. Does this have a shelf life?

    I found that the eye drops were very good and helped with lubrication and protection. I would recommend them to anyone. These worked especially when in high winds, they kept the eye from drying out and stopped the eye from getting sore.

    The service was excellent. My one concern is that the bottles are very hard to squeeze to get the liquid out of the bottle. I was not able to use it so it was even more difficult for my mother. I had to find another bottle to transfer it to to be able to use the product. If there is any way to get bottles that make it easier to use it would be perfect.
