Abstract

The development of hypotony is not uncommon in patients with uveitis. Recent evidence suggests that prostaglandins may cause reduction in intraocular pressure by increasing uveoscleral outflow. Ocular fluorescein clearence was measured in patients with hypotony due to chronic uveitis. The mean fluorescein clearence was found to be 0.44/hr., which is consistent with the results found by other investigators in normal subjects.
