Brief Summary:
Determinate the standard values of the retinal venous pressure in a cohort of healthy subjects.

Condition or disease
Healthy

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.
