Three kinds of perfluorinated liquids (a perfluorooctane and two perfluoropolyethers) were evaluated as vitreous replacements. Tolerance to these liquids in rabbit eyes was investigated for periods of up to 2 months. Clinically, droplet formation of the liquids occurred within a few days of intravitreal injection. Histologic examination revealed no pathologic retinal changes 8 hours after surgery. At 6 days after surgery, hypertrophy of the Müller cells with bumplike protrusions into the… CONTINUE READING
