Configuration of the normal vitreous fluorophotometry recording: Symbols

J. G. Cunha-Vaz, R. Zeimer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Findings during fluorophotometry studies of the normal human vitreous are described. The major landmarks are presented and a system of significant fluorophotometric variables is proposed. Use of this approach should optimize the evaluation of fluorophotometry data and maximize the information obtained concerning the status of the blood retinal barrier. A number of significant fluorophotometric variables should be characterized. We propose the following: posterior vitreous (PV), middle vitreous (MV), anterior vitreous (AV), lens (L), Anterior chamber (AC), gradient of posterior vitreous (GPV), gradient of anterior vitreous (GAV), blood-retinal barrier inward-transfer rate (BRB Kin), blood-retinal barrier outward-transfer rate (BRB Kout), and plasma (P).
