AIMS To study the clinical properties of double vital staining in premacular fibrosis, facilitating complete removal of all epiretinal tissue. METHODS In a two step surgery, the epiretinal pucker was removed after staining with trypan blue, whereafter the inner limiting membrane was peeled after staining with infracyanine green. RESULTS In all 30 patients, a separate epiretinal layer and inner limiting membrane were removed from the macular area. Pathological examination showed different… CONTINUE READING
