  • PURPOSE Acute oral water loading transiently elevates intraocular pressure (IOP) via mechanisms that remain unexplained. We tested the possibilities that water drinking might elevate IOP by creating a blood-aqueous osmotic gradient, or that it might instead alter active ion pumping and the formation of aqueous humor. METHODS In the first series, 16 young, healthy individuals were studied during dehydration and for 1 hour after rehydration (14 mL H2O/kg body weight). Hematocrit, total plasma… CONTINUE READING
