Having situated this relatively new research domain with respect to related fields and approaches, a brief summary of the most important research questions and preliminary findings is given. The discussion then focuses on two issues that are of particular(More)

BACKGROUND The diastolic and systolic pressure in the ophthalmic artery (OAPdia, OAPsys) as well as the venous pulsation pressure (VPP) can be determined by contact lens dynamometry (CLD). With these parameters, carotid artery stenosis, ocular perfusion, e.g., in glaucoma patients and the cerebrospinal pressure can be examined indirectly. In the underlying(More)
