28 OBF in patients with exudative ARMD as compared with age-matched controls (132). Tonographic methods of OBF measurement are based on assumptions about the relationship between intraocular volume and resultant intraocular pressure, from which OBF is estimated (133). Comparisons among individuals also assume that factors that may alter the pressure/volume relationship, such as scleral rigidity and axial length, do not vary.
