The presence of a dopamine-specific receptor that can influence intraocular pressure in the rabbit eye is suggested by these experiments: intravitreal, systemic, or topically administered dopamine solutions can produce a decrease in intraocular pressure that is dose-dependent. In high doses the decrease in intraocular pressure is accompanied by mydriasis, and alpha-adrenergic pupillary response. This alpha-response may be caused by dopamine as a direct, but weak alpha-stimulator or by… CONTINUE READING
