Abstract

Glaucoma was produced experimentally in owl monkeys by injection of alpha chymotrypsin to the posterior chamber. Scanning electron microscopy shows that in the glaucomatous eyes the trabecular meshwork was obstructed by particulate matter. A few of the obstructing particles were erythrocytes, and leukocytes were also present; but most of the particles were identified as zonular fragments.
