We used radioactive microspheres of different sizes to determine the rate of blood flow through the various parts of the eye in dogs. The use of either 15 ± 5 μm or 25 ± 5 μm microspheres gave reproducible measurements of total ocular and uveal blood flows. Using these sphere sizes, retinal flow was found to be close to 1% of the total ocular blood flow and showed poor reproducibility due in part to the small number of spheres trapped in the retinal vessels.
