PURPOSE To investigate quantitatively the relationships between elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), axonal loss, and corneal thickness in the DBA/2 mouse model of glaucoma, to understand better how these factors contribute to disease progression. METHODS IOP was measured with a handheld tonometer (Tono-Pen; Medtronic Solan, Jacksonville, FL) in 195 to 446 eyes of mice 2 to 10 months of age sampled from a colony of 400 DBA/2 mice. From a group of 24 eyes at 4, 9, and 10 months of age… CONTINUE READING
