Dopamine (DA) and three methylated analogs (N-methyldopamine, NMDA; N, N- dimethyldopamine , DMDA ;N,N-di-n- propyldopamine , DPDA) were examined for effects on intraocular pressure (IOP) and pupil diameter (PD) in normal rabbits, sympathectomized (SX) rabbits and rabbits with transected extraocular muscles ( EOMX ) following topical administration. In normal rabbits, the predominant effect of DA, NMDA and DMDA was transient, unilateral ocular hypertension with minimal effects on PD. In… CONTINUE READING
