WHAT IS OCULAR CYTOLOGY TEST?

An ocular smear or cellulose acetate filter paper impression is histologically evaluated for the presence of polymorphs or other inflammatory cells. Mapping of the ocular surface can be done from the impression specimen, providing information about changes in the surface cells of the eye, mucus production, and tear function. This test commonly includes staining by either Papanicolaou or Giemsa stain.
