Abstract

Three patients with different eye problems show pathological intraocular pressure in the supine position, while the pressure in the seated position was normal. In all three cases normalisation of intraocular pressure in the supine position could be achieved by treatment with Pilocarpine and other antiglaucomatous agents. Unfortunately one cases showed an aggravation of the visual acuity and visual fields. The term low tension glaucoma is discussed.
