Description Healon5 is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, transparent viscoelastic preparation of a highly purified, noninflammatory, high molecular weight (average molecular weight 4 million) of sodium hyaluronate. Healon5 contains 23 mg/mL of sodium hyaluronate 5000, dissolved in repeating disaccharide units of N-acetylglucosamine and sodium glucuronate linked by glycosidic bonds.

Sodium hyaluronate is a physiological substance that is widely distributed in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues in both animals and man. For example, it is present in the vitreous and aqueous humor of the eye, the synovial fluid, the skin, and the umbilical cord. Sodium hyaluronates derived from various human or animal tissues do not differ chemically.

The fraction of sodium hyaluronate in Healon5 is reported to be nonantigenic and does not cause inflammatory or foreign body reactions.
