Abstract

In a double-blind randomised, prospective single dose study, we measured intraocular pressure (IOP), pupil diameter, systemic blood pressure and heart rate in 43 ocular normotensive subjects before (baseline) and 2, 4, and 6 hours after topical instillation of the following drugs: dopamine 2% (n = 11), a dopamine receptor blocking drug, haloperidol 0.5% (n = 11). a dopamine receptor stimulating drug, bromocriptine 0.05% (n = 11) and 0.1% (n = 10).
