Seidel test animation   

Here's the color photograph.  I saw him as a second opinion and I sent him back to his surgeon for repair.

Tuesday, September 09, 2008 Update:

A few people have asked about this photo and animation.  For non-ophthalmologists:  this is a photo of a patient with glaucoma with a leaking trabeculectomy bleb.  A bleb is a surgical construct where an ophthalmologist creates a fistula from the anterior chamber of the eye to the space underneath the conjunctiva to lower the eye pressure.  In this case the bleb is leaking onto the surface of the eye. A seidel test is a procedure where a small amount of concentrated fluorescein dye is placed on the suspected leaking site and, if there is a leak, the fluorescein with become dilute and demonstrate the leak.
