This is another dry eye test that is routinely performed for the diagnosis of corneal or conjunctival disorders. Rose bengal or Lissamine green vital dye is used since it is easily seen in white illumination. Eyes that are dry show areas of corneal or conjunctival epithelial cell loss which cases the dye to accumulate.
