The effects of sympathetic tone on ocular blood flow have not been adequately studied in the past. Recent experimental work has contradicted earlier observations. We have used nuclidelabeled microspheres to measure the intraocular blood flow. The results of the study demonstrate that the ocular vascular beds are responsive to sympathetic tone. Cervical sympathectomy increased ocular blood flow, and sympathetic stimulation caused a decreased blood flow
