Photographs of the retina are taken after intravenous injection of sodium fluorescein, an orange-red crystalline hydrocarbon with a molecular weight of 376 daltons that diffuses thropgh most of the body flu ids. It is available as 2- 3 mL of25% concentration or 5 mL of 10% concentration in a sterile aqueous solution. It is eliminated CHAPTER 2: Diagnostic Approach to Retinal Disease. 21 primarily through the liver and kidneys within 24-36 hours via the urine.
