15 Ctrab ϭ ⌬Ftrab/⌬IOP ϭ (⌬VC2 ϩ ⌬VS2)/((Pt1 ϩ Pt2)/2 – Po)t Some of the assumptions that go into the calculation of outflow facility from tonography are that the rate of aqueous humor production during tonography remains at the normal rate and that the change from Pt1 to Pt2 is due to fluid being forced out of the eye only across the trabecular meshwork. Any decrease in the rate of aqueous humor formation or, if fluid is forced out of the eye by non-trabecular routes, for example decreased blood volume or extracellular fluid volume, are the term included in ‘pseudofacility’.

It has been hypothesized that this wall serves as the major barrier to aqueous humor drainage. 8). In humans, trabecular outflow accounts for 5 to 95% of aqueous drainage depending on the health of the eye, while in healthy monkeys the rate is about 50%. This flow is pressure dependent, meaning that the flow is proportional to the difference between IOP and the hydrostatic pressure in the canal. 8 Inner wall of Schelmm’s canal and the juxtacanalicular meshwork (also called cribriform meshwork).
