Abstract

The aim of this paper was to assess the morphological features of cells stained with rose Bengal along the human eyelid marginal zone (Marx's line). Impression cytology (IC) specimens were taken using a Millicell-CM filter unit placed across Marx's line of the lower eyelid of 10 healthy male adults (aged 18 to 57¿years). In vivo staining with rose Bengal was used in some subjects to highlight the line. The filters were stained with Giemsa. Cell and nucleus areas and dimensions were measured and nucleo-cytoplasmic ratios estimated using different calculations.
