The effect of acute hyperglycemia on retinal blood flow was measured in 12 diabetic patients (mean blood glucose, 276 mg%) on continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion and six nondiabetic controls (mean blood glucose, 198 mg%). Flow velocity measurements in macular capillaries were made using the blue field entoptic method. Retinal artery and vein diameters were measured using red-free fundus photographs. No significant change in flow velocity or retinal vessel diameter was noted in either group.
