PURPOSE Adrenergic substances are used widely for lowering intraocular pressure in the treatment of glaucoma. The hypothetic mechanisms for lowering the intraocular pressure by adrenergic drugs are decreased blood flow in the ciliary body and direct receptor-related reduction of aqueous humor production. The aim of this study is to measure noninvasively the blood flow in the anterior uvea in humans after topically administered dipivefrin. METHOD The blood flow of iris and ciliary body was… CONTINUE READING
