AIMS/BACKGROUND In Graves' ophthalmopathy the increase in volume of intraocular muscles and fat will cause elevated intraorbital pressure. In order to investigate the pressure levels involved, intraorbital pressure, or retrobulbar pressure (RBP) was measured continuously in orbits of patients with Graves' ophthalmopathy during surgical decompression. METHODS Retrobulbar pressure was measured before and during surgical decompression using an intraorbitally applied pressure transducer… CONTINUE READING
