Janus green vital staining of the cornea


Results are presented of Janus green vital staining of the corneal endothelium. The dye stains nuclei and mitochondria of non-vital cells and is therefore useful for evaluation of morphologic aspects of endothelial cells. The dye is too toxic for clinical use. The dye can be used in combination with alizarin red staining of the intercellular borders.
