Abstract

Intraocular pressure, blood pH, plasma osmolarily, blood lactate, blood pyruvate, blood pressure, and pulse xoere monitored in 12 human subjects following exercise. Intraocular pressure was found to decrease after exercise. This decrease was associated with a rise of blood lactate and plasma osmolarity and a fall in blood pH. The fall in intraocular pressure after exercise was compared to that seen after sodium lactate infusion.
