Goldmann's equation and clinical measures of aqueous dynamics

Exp Eye Res. 2004 Mar;78(3):633-7. doi: 10.1016/j.exer.2003.07.002.


Goldmann's equation has served for over 50 years as an adequate description of aqueous humor dynamics for clinical applications. Recent advances in therapeutics for glaucoma have made it necessary to revise the equation and to reinterpret the meanings of its parameters.
