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 the supine position averaged 2.9 mm Hg in normal eyes and 3.9 mm Hg in glaucomatous eyes. The pressure increase occurred immediately upon lying down and was(More)
A relationship has been derived between intraocular pressure and pulsatile blood flow in the eye. Measurements of intraocular pressure show a time variation that is associated with the pulsatile component of arterial pressure. Experimental results provide a means of transforming intraocular pressure changes into ocular volume changes. The eye is represented(More)
The peripheral and central neural actions of clonidine on normal and glaucomatous eyes have been investigated. Threshold doses of clonidine applied topically induced a monotonic decrease of intraocular pressure in the treated eye and had no effect on the contralateral eye. With increased clonidine dose, a decrease of intraocular pressure occurred in the(More)
A study has been made of the time courses of the pupillary and intraocular pressure responses of conscious rabbits to clonidine administered either topically or intravenously. Topical unilateral application of clonidine caused transient pupil dilatation and a biphasic intraocular pressure response; an initial hypertensive response preceded a hypotensive(More)
