The mean retinal venoarterial width ratio in 100 healthy subjects was measured with a PZO stereoscopic microscope equipped with a calibrated ocular and with an automatic digital image transformer coupled with an ODRA 1204 computer. The mean value was estimated as equal to 1.21 with an SD of 0.071. The same study was performed in 75 atherosclerotic patients… (More)

PURPOSE It is assumed that S-timolol can produce more severe systemic adverse reactions than R-timolol. The aim of this study was to estimate the intraocular pressure-lowering effect of RS-timolol in comparison to R-timolol and S-timolol in water-loaded rabbits. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ocular hypertension was provoked in rabbits by orogastric water loading.… (More)
