Abstract

Isoproterenol was applied topically to one eye of each of 20 normal human volunteers. The rate of aqueous humor flow was measured with fluorophotometry. Intraocular pressure fell slightly in the treated eye, but the rate of aqueous humor flow was unaltered. Even when applied to the cornea in high concentrations, this beta-adrenergic agonist appeared to have no measurable effect on the flow of aqueous humor through the anterior chamber in the human eye.
