Uveoscleral drainage of aqueous humour in human eyes.
The anterior chamber contents of 12 human eyes were mixed in vivo with [131I] albumin in isotonic saline and labelled albumin passed into the iris and the ciliary body including theciliary processes, the suprachoroid and the sclera, indicating that there is uveoscleral drainage of a queous humour in man as has been demonstrated previously in monkeys.

Applanation tension and axial length of the eyeball.
It was found that the effect of age and sex was limited to the age groups over 45 years; women in these groups have significantly higher means of applanation and Schiotz readings than men. Expand
Ocular hypotensive effect of late pregnancy with and without high blood pressure.
The mean ocular tension of third trimester hypertensive pregnant women did not differ significantly from that of third trimester non-hypertensives, in contrast to the tendency for open-angle glaucomaExpand
Effect of moderate exercise on the ocular tension.
In the present investigation, the effects on the ocular tension ofwalking (a more moderate type of exercise than those mentioned above) and sitting are compared. Expand
Some blood plasma constituents correlate with human cataract.
Human cataract in older age groups seems to be due to an accumulation of risk factors, even if individual mean concentrations are well within normal limits but, of course, differing significantly from the corresponding means in the control population. Expand
Systemic blood pressure in open-angle glaucoma, low tension glaucoma, and the normal eye.
The object of the present study was to investigate the hypothesis that a low systemic blood pressure might be associated with so-called low tension glaucoma: the rather unexpected result was anExpand
Blindness in schoolchildren: importance of heredity, congenital cataract, and prematurity
Of 99 children in the Royal Blind School, Edinburgh, 15 had optic atrophy, and almost 48% were hereditary, which testifies to the frequency of autosomal recessive hereditary disease, although no parents were consanguineous. Expand
Diagnostic survey at Yamanashi School for Blind: importance of heredity.
The commonest cause of blindness among the 67 patients at the Yamanashi School for the Blind was congenital cataract, and an autosomal recessive cause is the likeliest explanation for the majority of the nonenvironmental causes. Expand
