Abstract:Radial keratotomy produced a statistically significant acute increase in outflow facility in freshly enucleated porcine eyes. We believe that this increase results from steepening of the peripheral corneal curvature and the concomitant stretching of the iridocorneal angle. Further studies are needed to evaluate this effect in human eyes and in vivo.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
