PURPOSE Previous work has shown that indocyanine green (ICG)-assisted peeling of the inner limiting membrane (ILM) may cause retinal damage. In this study, a toxic and a photodynamic effect of ICG at the vitreoretinal interface was assumed. METHODS Ten human donor eyes were hemisected, and 0.05 mL of 0.05% ICG was poured over the trephined macula in eight eyes. After 1 minute, the dye was drained by irrigation. The macula in each of two eyes was illuminated for 3 minutes with wavelengths of… CONTINUE READING
