Bimanual trabecular aspiration in pseudoexfoliation glaucoma: an alternative in nonfiltering glaucoma surgery.
OBJECTIVE The primary cause of intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation in pseudoexfoliation glaucoma is obstruction of the intertrabecular spaces by exfoliation material. Previously, the authorsExpand

The vascular basis of the positional influence on the intraocular pressure
By measuring intraocular pressure in different body positions from 60° semiupright to 30° head down, a nonlinear relationship between IOP increase and body position was confirmed. IOP posturalExpand

Influence of body position on the intraocular pressure of normal and glaucomatous eyes.
In 77 normal and 65 glaucomatous eyes the influence of body position on the intraocular pressure was studied, using the pneumatonograph. The pressure increment when changing from the seated to theExpand
