The hypotensive effect of ascorbate on intraocular pressure has been reported following topical application, oral administration, or anterior chamber infusion in animals. The present report describes the correlation of aqueous humor ascorbate concentration with intraocular pressure as well as outflow facility in vivo. Low aqueous ascorbate level was seen in buphthalmic eyes with high intraocular pressure and low outflow facility. The opposite correlation was observed in normal eyes. Ascorbate concentration in the anterior chamber of the rabbit eye is apparently related to the alteration of outflow facility and the movement of fluid in the anterior chamber.
