Purpose: To describe a staining technique that will enhance the visualization of non-absorbable T-Flux implants.
Methods: The technique was applied to non-absorbable T-Flux implants. The implants were submerged for 5 to 10 minutes in a sodium fluorescein solution, and dried with a sponge when removed from the solution.
Discussion: This is a very simple and easy procedure that uses a common fluorescein solution to enhance the contrast between the surgical field and a transparent implant used in deep sclerectomy. This colour technique will decrease the risk of loss of the implant in the surgical field.
