Episode 3: Lissamine Green

In this episode, the Optometric Insights team discuss how they use lissamine green staining in clinical practice. Although fluoroscein staining is crucial for evaluating the cornea, other vital dyes are necessary to assess the conjunctiva and lid margin. According to Drs. Kading and Brujic, lissamine green staining, which may be more comfortable on the eye than rose bengal, is important for detecting difficult to diagnose conditions that would otherwise be missed in the clinical examination.
