Rose bengal staining as an assessment of ocular surface damage and recovery in dry eye disease - a review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to review the use of ophthalmic rose bengal to assess the ocular surface, especially considering the grading scales used. A literature search was undertaken to identify reports where either rose bengal or lissamine green had been used as a ‘vital’ stain, with a special interest in identifying studies that provided data before and after treatment for dry eye and also considered the mechanism of action of these two chemicals.
