    Effects of water drinking test on ocular blood flow using optical coherence tomography angiography

    Purpose : Increased intraocular pressure (IOP) is a major risk factor for the development of glaucoma and its progression. Literature has proposed the water drinking test (WDT) as a practical method to predict the IOP peak of diurnal tension curve. This preliminary study assesses changes in macular and peripapillary vascular microcirculation using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) metrics after WDT in healthy eyes. Methods : Five healthy subjects (age 37±7.9 years) underwent the WDT, which involved drinking a 1-liter water load in 5 minutes after 4 hours of fasting. IOP using non-contact tonometry and OCTA scans from CIRRUS™ 6000 AngioPlex ...
