Use of vital staining to assess ocular surface health is largely from the work of M.S. Norn who also reported the presence of a mucous thread in the inferior conjunctival fornix in 1962. This thread of mucous has physiologic implications and this video demonstrates a common surgical finding and attempts to teach historical context leading to our use of vital stains, ocular surface physiology, and a largely forgotten historical observation.
