The purpose of the study was to compare the retinal sensitivity of pigmented and albino rabbits to ischemia/reperfusion-induced electroretinogram (ERG) alterations and optic nerve morphological changes. High intraocular pressure (HIOP) was induced by applying a suction-cup on the eye and a depression with an ophthalmodynamometer. HIOP was maintained for lengths of time (30-75 min). Flash ERGs were recorded in dark-adapted animals for ischemia and 2 h reperfusion periods. Two weeks later… CONTINUE READING
