Evaluation of ocular blood flow in humans offers great promise in detecting ocular pathology. However, a gold standard for assessment of ocular blood flow does not exist. The assorted techniques utilized to evaluate ocular blood flow possess inherent limitations and assess different aspects of ocular circulation. In this chapter, up-to-date techniques for measuring the retrobulbar, choroidal and retinal circulation are described. The text then covers retinal oximetry methods for determining oxygen saturation in the major retinal vessels. Finally, the association of the ocular circulation to a number of ophthalmic diseases is described.
