Description

Introduction This presentation is designed to give you a better understanding of the evaluation of the anterior segment. It will demonstrate the proper application of fluorescein and the purpose and use of the Wratten filter in enhancing the luminescence of the fluorescein. We will discuss fluorescein staining patterns that include three and nine o’clock, arcuate, dimple veil, foreign body, punctate, stippling, and abrasions and list the possible causes of each. Slit lamp illuminations and specific situations in which the various illuminations are most likely to be utilized will be presented.
