... Because of this, we focused on fluorescein, a dye first synthesized in 1871 by Adolf von Baeyer [114] , that has now broad use in ophthalmology and a large safety window. This is true especially for surface applications [114] such as detection of epithelial defects, tear film breakup time, Goldmann applanation tonometry, leak detection (Seidel test), but also for intravascular use in angiography [98,99] and intracameral use such as capsule staining [115] . Fluorescein has been used to compare outflow patterns in patients after glaucoma surgery as early as 1921: Seidel examined both in a cat model and in more than 100 human patients the mechanism of scleral full-thickness fistulation (Elliot's trepanation) [116] after an intracameral bolus. ...
