A safe, non-invasive technique for elimination of anterior chamber Trypan blue used for anterior capsule staining in cataract surgery.
Conventional methods of eliminating Trypan blue dye from the anterior chamber (AC) may involve ëblindí cannula tip insertion into the AC to allow egress of the dye with viscoelastic. This may introduce a potential risk of complications resulting from cannula tip trauma. A novel and potentially safer technique is described. It is non-invasive, and is performed under direct vision, both in the instillation and removal of the dye.
