Abstract: : Purpose: To quantify the relationship between ciliary blood flow and aqueous production under control conditions in an animal model. Methods: In pentobarbital anesthetized rabbits, mean arterial pressure (MAP) and intraocular pressure (IOP) were measured by direct cannulation. In Group 1 (n=22), aqueous flow was measured by fluorophotometry. In Group 2 (n=15), ciliary blood flow was measured by laser Doppler flowmetry. Measurements in both groups were made for 60 min while MAP was set at 40, 55, 70 or 80 mmHg with occluders on the vena cava and aorta. Results:  

Keywords: aqueous • blood supply • inflow/ciliary body
