Intraocular pressure response to systemically administered osmotic agents was studied in albino rabbits with one optic nerve transected and the fellow optic nerve left intact. There eas a significant increase in intraocular pressure of both eyes following water ingestion but no significant difference in the pressure rise of the two eyes. There was a significant decrease in intraocular pressure of both eyes following glycerol ingestion but no significant difference in the pressure fall of two eyes. These results do not support the hypothesis that the optic nerve carries fibers which are part of the control system for intraocular pressure.
