Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Retinal venous pressure [ Time Frame: 1 hour ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Quantification of the retinal venous pressure as a standard value in a cohort of healthy volunteers


Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: November 2011
Study Completion Date: December 2013
Primary Completion Date: June 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The retinal venous pressure (RVP) is an increasingly important dimension in the clinical assessment of retinal blood flow.

In literature only very few and also divergent data on the retinal venous pressure in healthy volunteers are described. A normal value study will provide us with an up-to-date database.
