Abstract

By application of data obtained for uveal blood flow by the nitrous oxide method in individual experimental animals, reported in a previous paper, to oxygen and glucose determinations, the oxygen consumption of uveal tissue was found to average 4.0 ┬Ál per gram per minute and the glucose averaged 0.047 mg. per gram per minute. These figures are compared with known cerebral metabolic values. Data on CO2 obtained in this study support the concept that little oxygen is utilized in the metabolism of the uveal tract.
