PMID:  7228809     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An automated machine for the application of intermittent preoperative ocular compression is described. Its intermittent action allows retinal perfusion at regular intervals and use of a much higher pressure than would be allowed with a constant compression device. The shorter compression time necessary with this machine allows less time for retrobulbar anesthesia to wear off. Its use safely and rapidly reduces intraocular pressure before surgery.
