MABP  =  mean arterial blood pressure; IOP  =  intraocular pressure; HR  =  heart rate; FBS  =  fasting blood sugar.
Values are expressed as means (SD).
*p<0.05 and †p<0.01 compared with control.
p<0.05 and p<0.01 compared with the NPDR/MO− group.
CBVel indicates choroidal blood velocity; CBVol choroidal blood volume; and CBF choroidal blood flow.
