Abstract

Young and old volunteers received acetazolamide systemically or isoproterenol topically. Although the responses of the two groups of volunteers were quite similar for acetazolamide, they differed significantly for isoproterenol. It is suggested that a normal aging change is altered responsiveness of the site of aqueous production and of the outflow pathways to topical isoproterenol. The site of aqueous production becomes less responsive; the outflow pathways become more responsive.
