The decays in the applanation pressures of both eyes, after a reduction of the aqueous secretion by means of intravenous acetazolamide, are studied with respect to shape and steepness by comparison with reference curves calculated from different values of the facility of aqueous outflow. The pressure decays in three out of four eyes with narrow-angle glaucoma exhibited "breaks" possibly resulting from a stepwise reopening of the chamber angle during the decompression. Twenty patients with… CONTINUE READING
