D isoproterenol d bitartrate applied topically lowers intraocular pressure (IOP) in normal albino rabbits and rabbits with alpha chymotrypsin induced glaucoma. This effect is independent of any effect on systemic blood pressure or pulse rate. A similar response could not be obtained in monkey or human eyes. Subconjunctival injection of d isoproterenol d bitartrate to monkey eyes did not alter IOP.
