Abstract

1. The time-course of the ocular effects of topical verapamil and nifedipine as well as the dose-response relationship, were studied in conscious, normotensive rabbits. 2. Both drugs caused a dose-dependent fall of intraocular pressure, which lasted 4 hr or more. 3. Log dose-response curves of both drugs show a similar peak response, but the potency of verapamil was greater than that of nifedipine. 4. A fall in the intraocular pressure in the untreated eye was also observed. 5. Verapamil and nifedipine induced a reduction of the tonographic outflow facility in the treated eye. © 1993.
