DESCRIPTION Balanced Salt Solution Sterile Irrigating Solution is a sterile balanced salt solution, each mL containing sodium chloride (NaCl) 0.64%, potassium chloride (KCl) 0.075%, calcium chloride dihydrate (CaCl22H2O) 0.048%, magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MgCl26H2O) 0.03%, sodium acetate trihydrate (C2H3NaO23H2O) 0.39%, sodium citrate dihydrate (C6H5Na3O72H2O) 0.17%, sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid (to adjust pH), and water for injection.

PRECAUTIONS SECTION.


PRECAUTIONS Open under aseptic conditions only. Studies suggest that intraocular irrigating solutions which are iso-osmotic with normal aqueous fluids should be used with caution in diabetic patients undergoing vitrectomy since intraoperative lens changes have been observed. There have been reports of corneal clouding or edema following ocular surgery in which Balanced Salt Solution Sterile Irrigating Solution was used as an irrigating solution.
