The effect of posture on the Pulsatile Ocular Blood Flow (POBF) was studied in 79 normal subjects with different refractive errors. The axial length was measured, followed by Perkins intraocular pressure (IOP) and POBF with an OBF tonometer at a sitting posture. The measurements of IOP and POBF were repeated at a lying posture. Both the POBF and PA were influenced by axial length, indicating that axial length should be measured in determining the POBF and PA.
