The effect of the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, acetazolamide, on the retinal circulation was studied in 10 healthy volunteers. Acetazolamide was administered intravenously at a dose of 500 mg. Retinal blood flow was determined from red cell velocity using laser Doppler velocimetry and vessel diameter measurement using computerised digital image analysis of monochromatic fundus photographs. There was a significant increase in retinal blood flow at 30 minutes and 60 minutes after acetazolamide… CONTINUE READING
