In vivo fluorescein staining of SI-30NB silicone intraocular lens.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We report a case of a 48-year-old pseudophakic woman who presented 3 weeks after Heidelberg retinal angiography using intravenous sodium fluorescein 2%. Bilateral retinal vasculitis with severe retinal ischemia and extensive capillary dropouts had been diagnosed. Anterior segment examination revealed green staining on the silicone optic of the 3-piece SI-30NB intraocular lens (IOL) (AMO), with no cell or flare in the aqueous humor. The anterior and posterior capsules were not stained. The patient did not report dark vision, double vision, or altered color vision. The anterior and posterior IOL surfaces demonstrated an autofluorescence at the time of fundus photography, which persisted to the 6-week examination although there were no symptoms. This is suggestive of deposits of sodium fluorescein on the IOL surface following angiography.
