Internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling without dye is technically difficult in retinal detachment due to macular hole in high myopia (MHRD) with chorioretinal atrophy because of poor visualisation of ILM. Accordingly, a dye such as indocyanine green (ICG) or trypan blue (TB) is essential for facilitating ILM peeling. However, recent reports have emerged about retinal damage caused by ICG and TB both in experimental and clinical use.1–4 There is a need to develop new dyes for effective and safe staining in order to facilitate ILM peeling. In the present study, we investigated the efficacy of a new dye: brilliant blue G (BBG) assisted ILM peeling for MHRDs.
