Optic nerve head perfusion response to reduced blood pressure and increased intraocular pressure

The purpose of this prospective study was to test the hypothesis that blood flow autoregulation in the optic nerve head has less reserve to maintain normal blood flow where there is a blood pressure induced decrease in ocular perfusion pressure...

Implantation of intraocular pressure sensor in glaucoma patients

The authors report safety and accuracy of an intraocular intraocular pressure (IOP) sensor placed in the ciliary sulcus during planned cataract surgery. Six patients underwent implantation of the device; a silicone rubber ring-shaped device encapsulating pressure sensitive capacitors and a...

Short-term effects of intravitreal bevacizumab on the cornea

Bevacizumab has been extensively used to treat macula oedema and neovascularisation of the retina and it has also been useful in the management of corneal neovascular diseases. This prospective study aimed to provide more information on the effect bevacizumab may...

Brimonidine day and night time IOP

The authors describe a randomised double masked study of 29 participants with ocular hypertension (OHT) who either self-administered 0.2% brimonidine or placebo three times daily for six weeks. Patients were seen during day time and night time visits and had...

Effects of topical anaesthetic on intraocular pressure

This prospective interventional study assessed the effects of repeated intraocular pressure (IOP) using Goldmann applanation tonometry and applanation resonance tonometry in six volunteers. Previous literature supports IOP reduction using repeated applanation tonometry. Repeated IOP measures were taken alternately on 12...
