Purpose: To investigate the effect of choroidal melanoma on pulsatile ocular blood flow (POBF).Methods: Seventeen patients (10 men and 7 women) with unilateral untreated choroidal melanoma and 22 controls matched for age and sex were studied. Intraocular pressure (IOP), pulse amplitude (PA) and POBF were measured using the OBF Tonograph. In each patient, mean inter-ocular differences were analysed using the paired t-test. The correlation coefficient between tumour thickness and POBF was… CONTINUE READING
