The authors used the Humphrey Retinal Analyzer to study the effect of acute changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) on the topography of the optic nerve head in normotensive and hypertensive eyes of cynomolgus monkeys. Chronically elevated IOP was produced monocularly in monkeys by argon laser angle treatment. In 8 hypertensive eyes, the mean IOP of 51 mmHg was lowered acutely to 15 mmHg with a needle placed in the anterior chamber. In 12 normotensive eyes, the mean IOP of 16 mmHg was similarly… CONTINUE READING
