VisionBlue® (trypan blue) is indicated for use as an aid in ophthalmic surgery by staining the anterior capsule of the lens.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
After opening the eye, an air bubble is injected into the anterior chamber of the eye in order to minimize dilution of VisionBlue® (trypan blue) by the aqueous. VisionBlue® (trypan blue) is carefully applied onto the anterior lens capsule using a blunt cannula. Sufficient staining is achieved as soon as the dye has contacted the capsule. The anterior chamber is then irrigated with balanced salt solution to remove all excess dye. An anterior capsulotomy can then be performed.

0.5 mL of VisionBlue® (trypan blue) in a sterile single-use Luer Lok, 2.25 mL glass syringe, grey rubber plunger stopper and tip cap with polypropylene plunger rod in a peel pouch.
VisionBlue® (trypan blue) is stored at 15-25°C (59-77°F). Protect from direct sunlight.
