To the Editor We read the article titled “Efficacy and Safety of Antifungal Additives in Optisol-GS Corneal Storage Medium” by Layer et al1 with interest. In their article, the authors investigated the efficacy and safety of voriconazole and amphotericin B in reducing Candida species contamination of Optisol-GS under normal storage conditions. Layer and colleagues used 0.4% trypan blue as a vital stain to evaluate corneal endothelium toxic effects.
