The distribution of applanation pressure and of tonographic estimate of outflow facility were investigated in 390 diabetics and in a control group. Analysis of the results suggested that adult diabetes produces a reduction in intraocular pressure. In addition, it suggested the possibility that a complex relationship between diabetes and intraocular pressure may exist with effects acting in opposite directions such that their detection is masked by interaction and requires refinement in classification.
