To the Editor:
—The highly informative paper by Perraut and Zimmerman in the June issue of the A.M.A. Arch. of Ophth. made me think of the possibility that occlusion of the outlets of Schlemm's canal might be found in glaucomatous eyes with retinal artery occlusion if searched for. Since many of the afflicted patients are suffering from vascular disease, it is conceivable that vascular changes similar to those in the central retinal artery could occur in the vessels surrounding Schlemm's canal. It might not be easy to find these obstructions without special methods such as plate reconstruction models or neoprene casts.
