The ophthalmic guidewire is designed to navigate vessels to reach a lesion or vessel segment. Once the tip of the device arrives at its destination, it acts as a guide that larger catheters can rapidly follow for easier delivery to the treatment site. The ophthalmic guidewire is characterized by their usability, steerability, torque, and opacity. Pushability is the amount of force needed to advance the wire. Steerability is the ability and responsiveness of the wire tip to navigate vessels. Torque is the response of the cable to turning by the operator when navigating vessels. Its opacity is its level of visibility under fluoroscopic imaging. The primary functions of the Ophthalmic Guidewire are to access the lesion, to cross the lesion atraumatically, to provide support for interventional devices and the has ability to bend with direct pressure. Ophthalmic guidewire has an ability to follow the wire tip around curves and bends without bucking or kinking, to navigate anatomy of the vasculature. Hydrophobic coatings are silicone based coatings which repel water and are applied on the working length of the wire, except the distal tip. They require no activation by liquids to create a wax-like surface and to achieve the desired effect to reduce friction and increase traceability of the wire. Silicone coating has higher friction, more stable feel inside the vessel.
