  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed fluorescein fundus angiography with a scannning laser ophthalmoscope using lesser amount of fluorescein than the customary 5ml of 10% solution. In 9 healthy young volunteers and 14 patients with eye diseases, clinically useful angiograms were obtained using 5ml of 2% solution. The intensity of exciting light was set at 1% of fluorescein angiography with conventional fundus camera. There was no side effect attributable to intravenous injection of fluorescein at the above reduced dosis. The present method has the advantage because of far lesser light exposure of the fundus in addition to theoretically reduced side effects of intravenous fluorescein.
