Tension of the choroid of enucleated eyes was adjusted by incising the sclera and lengthening the eye. The facility of outflow increased in direct proportion to choroid stretch. The present results are compared with reported results of anterior chamber deepening and lens depression in vitro and with accommodation and goniospasis in vivo. Choroid stretch in the enucleated eye is less efficient in increasing outflow facility than is equivalent choroid movement in accommodation. Anterior chamber deepening and lens depression also appear to be relatively inefficient means of enhancing outflow facility, although goniospasis appears to be relatively efficient. The suggestion is made that traction of the ciliary body on the trabecular mesh in an axipetal direction is more efficient in enhancing outflow facility than is traction in the meridional direction.
