In an attempt to study the development of glaucoma in rabbits, animals with establishedglaucoma and buphthalmos were bred, and their offspring followed with tonography at monthly intervals. Findings indicated that: (A) The animals developing glaucoma, as determined by a corneal diameter of 17 mm. or more at 1 year of age, had elevated intraocular pressures at 5 to 6 months of age, and impaired outflow facilities as early as 3 months of age. (B) Animals with corneal diameters of 15 mm. or less at 1 year showed no pressure elevations, and had much higher outflow facilities throughout the first year of life.
