To evaluate the safety of different concentrations of methyl violet dye on cornea and trabecular meshwork of rabbit's eye. Also, to test the capacity of the non-toxic concentration to stain the anterior lens capsule. The work in this study was divided into 3 parts. The first part was to study the effect of different concentrations (1% to 0.1%) of methyl violet stain on the cornea and trabecular meshwork of rabbit's eye. The eyes were examined after 1 week using light microscopy (LM) and transmission electron microscopy ITEM). The second part was to assess the microbiological action of the non-toxic (safe) concentration on dffferent microbial cultures. The third part was to study the capacity of the non-toxic concentration to stain the anterior lens capsule and compare it to one of the actually used stains in performing CCC.
