    The effect of acute hyperglycemia on retinal thickness and ocular refraction in healthy subjects. Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol. 2008 Jan 25; Authors: Wiemer NG, Eekhoff EM, Simsek S, Heine RJ, Ringens PJ, Polak BC, Dubbelman M PURPOSE: To quantify the retinal thickness and the refractive error of the healthy human eye during hyperglycemia by means of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Hartmann-Shack aberrometry. METHODS: Hyperglycemia was induced in five healthy subjects who were given a standard oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) after a subcutaneous injection of somatostatin. Main outcome parameters were the central, pericentral and peripheral thickness of the ...
