:   FLUOR-I-STRIP is a specially prepared sterile ophthalmic strip for diagnostic use.

:   For staining the anterior segment of the eye when:

a) delineating a corneal injury, herpetic lesion or foreign body,

b) determining the site of an intraocular injury,

c) fitting contact lenses,

d) making the fluorescein test to ascertain postoperative closure of the sclerocorneal
    (also referred to as corneoscleral) wound in delayed anterior chamber reformation,

e) making the lacrimal drainage test.

Directions for Use :   To open envelope, grasp pull-tabs firmly and separate slowly. Separate the two strips by tearing off white tab end. Moisten end of strip with a drop of sterile water. Place moistened strip at the fornix in the lower cul-de-sac close to the punctum. For best results, patient should close lid tightly over strip until desired amount of staining is obtained. Another method is to retract upper lid and touch tip of strip to the bulbar conjunctiva on the temporal side until an adequate amount of stain is available for a clearly defined end-point reading.

Warning :   Never use fluorescein while the patient is wearing soft contact lenses because the lenses may become stained. Whenever fluorescein is used, flush the eyes with sterile, normal saline solution, and wait at least one hour before replacing the lenses.

Storage :   Store at room temperature (approximately 25°C).

How Supplied :   Boxes of 300 strips in individual envelopes (NDC 24208-390-83).
