The function of the ciliary processes in the rabbit eye has been studied by a new technique with a slit lamp and photographic registration in in vitro experiments on living processes. The appearance of the processes and their shrinkage during the course of an experiment have been taken as a measure of secretory activity. The secretory activity was shown to be potassium dependent, and could be blocked by carbonic anhydrase inhibition. It is thought that this new technique of obtaining information on secretion in the ciliary processes in the eye might be of use in studies on other secretory problems, too.
