PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF THE V ARIOUS VASCULAR FACTORS CONTROLLING THE BLOOD FLOW IN THE ONH Efficiency of the Autoregulation in the Optic Nerve Head Among the ocular tissues, it is well-established that the retinal circulation normally has efficient autoregulation(Porsa, 1941; Dollery et aI, 1963; Russell, 1963; AIm & Bill, 1972; 1973; Bill, 1974). The presence of efficient autoregulation in the normal ONH has been reported recently by a large number of experimental and clinical studies (Ernest, 1974; 1976; 1977; 1979;Geijer & Bill, 1979; Sossi & Anderson, 1983; Weinstein et aI, 1983; Robert & Maurer, 1983; Bill, 1985; Pillunat et aI, 1985a; 1985b; 1986a; 1986b; 1987; Sperber & Bill, 1985; Bill & Sperber, 1987 Robert et aI, 1988; 1989; Novack et aI, 1990) although it was denied in earlier studies (AIm & Bill, 1973).
