Reminder: Fluorescein Only Available Directly from Manufacturer

ASRS has been in conversations with Alcon regarding the ongoing supply issues related to Fluorescein. Due to Akorn ceasing operations, Alcon’s Fluorescite is the only available product on the market. While quantities are limited to 36 vials a day, retina specialists and practices may order directly from Alcon by contacting customer service at 1-800-862-5266.

Previously, Alcon shared a letter to the retina community with ASRS regarding the supply issues.
