Abstract

An implantable system is described which continuously delivered an aqueous solution to the external surface of six rabbit eyes for 6 weeks. A polytetrafluoroethylene tube was implanted in the superior conjunctival fornix 4 weeks prior to the implantation of the Infusaid pump. The pump provides a fluid source which is easily refilled and requires no batteries or external power source.
