The MSD sheet does not list eye precautions; however, does say “wash affected 
area with soap and water”.  Rash is your biggest concern

At 95.00 for a 3mm square, finances might be my concern wearing my managers 
hat….

I’ve heard of some emergency departments using tegaderm on a closed lid so that 
they can use aquasonic ultrasound gel. Does anyone here do this?  Why/ why not?

Hi All I work for Natus - Sr.Int'l Clinical Specialist-RetCam/Vision.

Funny to see that you state Genteal Gel is on  B/O as my wife ordered me 2 
cases from her practice and I received them within
10 days of ordering...

Hi Optimal,

My pharmacy is unable to order ANY gel for ultrasounds. Does anyone have any 
suggestions as to where I might be able to order more? Otherwise, I think I may 
have to go local pharmacies and buy any stock they might have.



Genteal Gel = “back order” (per our pharmacy)

Refresh liquigel = in stock but not viscous enough (personal preference)

Goniovisc = discontinued (per our pharmacy)



I’m reaching out to you because when I ask my pharmacy department has no 
contingency. Your thoughts?



C.
