aqueous humor is produced by_____ and controlled by _____
posterior chamber, carbonic anhydrase
glaucoma therapy focuses on which 2 mechanisms of increased IOP?
increasing outflow and inhibition of production
what are the 2 aqueous humor outflow routes?
trabecular (70%), uveoscleral (30%)
Do prostaglandins effect outflow or production of aqueous humor?
what is the MOST SIGNIFICANT factor in the etiology of increased IOP?
interference with aqueous outflow
(T or F) Non-contact tonometry (nct) is considered applanation tonometry?
(T or F) With applantation tonomtery, repeated reading will change IOP
false, however, with indention tonometry repeated reading would increase IOP
The avg corneal thickness is______
diameter of applanation is______
area of applanation is_______
what is the "gold standard" of tonometry
On the goldmann tonometry dial, each small mark is equal to ____
name 3 types of common diagnostic agents
anesthetics, cycloplegics, mydriatics
(T or F) patients may have a cross-sensitivity to Fluress if they have ever had an adverse reaction to novocaine
(T or F) patients may have a cross-sensitivity to proparacaine if they have ever had an adverse reaction to novocaine
false, if they are allergic to novocaine they will have cross sensitivity to fluress and proparacaine would be the alternative for that patient

what is the separation in degrees of the white and red lines on the Goldmann tonometer?
To set up for goldmann tonometry:polarized filter is ____, mag is _____, illuminaion is ____

Why do you want to put the sit lamp system arm at 5-10 degrees?
so you can click in goldmanns probe so that it will be perpendicular with the corneal plane
