Intradialytic elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) has been reported in patients without glaucoma and also in patients suffering from glaucoma. The most common mechanism underlying the rise in IOP may be a rapid fall in plasma osmolarity with a consequent increase in aqueous formation. Some have suggested that decreased aqueous outflow might be the… (More)
