Abstract

Purpose: To report the clinical, electrophysiologic, and histologic findings of different concentrations of indocyanine green (ICG) injected into the vitreous cavity of rabbit eyes. Methods: Forty-two rabbits underwent intravitreal injection of 0.1 mL of ICG in three different concentrations: 0.5 mg/mL (250 mOsm), 5 mg/mL (270 mOsm), and 25 mg/mL (170 mOsm). Fellow eyes were injected with 0.1 mL of balanced salt solution. Biomicroscopy, ophthalmoscopy, electroretinography, fluorescein angiography, and histologic evaluation were performed. Results: Eyes injected with 0.5 mg/mL of ICG showed b-wave latency delay on the first day after injection. Eyes injected with 5 mg/mL of ICG showed b-wave latency delay and decreased b-wave amplitude on the first and seventh days after injection; delayed a-wave latency on the first day after injection was also observed. Eyes injected with 25 mg/mL of ICG showed b- and a-wave amplitude and latency abnormalities during the entire followup. Direct correlation of increasing retinal edema proportional to the progressively increasing ICG concentrations was shown on histologic evaluation. Conclusion: Intravitreal ICG injection in rabbit eyes may impair retinal function and morphology proportional to the progressively increasing ICG dosages.
