Six dog eyes were fixed by intracameral perfusion of fixative at pressures of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 cm of water. Eight dog eyes were fixed after the injection in both ocular chambers of a number of cholinergic agents, either singly or in combination. Under the effect of miotics and under increased ocular pressure, the aqueous pathways expand. An analysis of the forces involved in expansion of the exit pathways reveals the primary role of the detached ciliary body in nonaccommodating mammals… CONTINUE READING
