Aqueous humour turnover and intraocular pressure during menstruation.

    Both intraocular pressure and aqueous humour turnover rate were determined at intervals over three months in three females in order to investigate whether a correlation existed between these variables and the menstrual cycle. Not only was there a lack of correlation between intraocular pressure or aqueous humour flow rate and menses but intraocular pressure and aqueous humour flow rate were also not related to each other. If pharmacologically administered doses of progesterone or oestrogen influence intraocular pressure, the present data indicate that the effect is probably mediated through effects on the aqueous outflow pathways.
