PURPOSE To evaluate the correlation of blood-flow velocities in the ophthalmic artery and corneal temperature in normal subjects and glaucoma patients. METHODS Corneal temperature was measured on both eyes by means of the THI-500 non-contact infrared thermometer in 18 healthy volunteers and in 18 age and sex matched open-angle glaucoma patients. In these subjects, blood flow velocity was assessed by means of color Doppler imaging (CDI) in both ophthalmic arteries. Peak systolic velocity (PSV… CONTINUE READING
