Ocular blood flow, in particular to the optic nerve head, is considered important in determining the extent of glaucomatous damage. The 24-hour variation in the pulsatile component of ocular blood flow (POBF) was measured using a pneumotonometer linked to the Langham Ocular Blood Flow System. Intraocular pressure (IOP), ocular pulse amplitude, POBF, systemic blood pressure and heart rate were recorded at three-hourly intervals over a 24-hour period in 10 ocular hypertensives, eight patients… CONTINUE READING
