Intraocular pressure was measured in different positions of horizontal gaze in 6 normal [human] subjects. Pressure was lowest in primary gaze and increased in proportion to the 2nd power of the gaze deviation from primary gaze, rising by .apprx. 2 mm Hg in 50.degree. nasal gaze and by .apprx. 3 mm Hg in 50.degree. temporal gaze.
