PURPOSE To describe changes in rabbit retina after intravitreous injection of perfluorohexyloctane (F6H8). METHODS Intravitreous injections of C3F8 were performed in the right eye of 48 male New Zealand albino rabbits. All 48 eyes were injected with C3F8. The animals were divided in three groups of 18 each. 18 eyes (6 in each group) were used as controls and 30 (10 in each group) were further injected with F6H8.
