PURPOSE This study used high-resolution research confocal laser scanning microscopy to study the epithelium of fresh bovine corneas treated with two contact lens solutions. METHODS Fresh bovine corneal buttons were stained with a combination of the cell-permeable mitochondrial- and nuclear-specific dyes rhodamine 123 and Hoechst 33342 or acridine orange and imaged with a confocal laser scanning microscope. High-resolution X,Y images of the corneal epithelium were taken with a Zeiss 510… CONTINUE READING
