Ocular Therapeutics (DYES)

Hello Awesomites! :D

Today I will discuss here

DYES:-

USES OF FLUORESCEIN DYE
-This dye stain damaged corneal epithelium bright green best seen under cobalt blue and ultraviolet light.
1. To detect breach in continuity of corneal epithelium.
2. Contact lens fitting.
3. Applanation tonometer.
4. Test for leaking wound (Seidel test)
5. Patency of nasolacrimal duct.
6. Fluorescein angiography.
7. Diagnosis of lacrimal fistula.
8. Treatment of pediculosis (Fluorescein dye strips, which are used in the diagnosis of corneal abrasions, may be used in combination with white petrolatum. The strips are applied to the eyelashes for 3 nights)
9. Differential stain along with Rose bengal.

Pattern of stain:-
- interpalpebral staining of cornea & conjuctiva is common in aqueous tear deficiency
-superior Conjuctival Staining in superior limbic keratoconjuctivitis
-Inferior corneal &conjuctival staining in blepheritis & exposure keratitis.


USES OF ROSE BENGAL:-
-Stain the devitalized corneal and conjuctival epithelium. The drawback with rose bengal is it stings.
-Seen under white light /red free light. (Red-free light is absorbed by the RPE, creating increased contrast)

1. CORNEA -Staining corneal ulcer,erosion and abrasion.
2. LID- Meibomian gland dysfunction.
3. CONJUCTIVA- Conjuctival staining and evaluation of ocular surface disorder.

I hope it helped.
More is coming up in this section.
