fluorophotometry

fluorophotometry

 [floor″o-fo-tom´ĕ-tre]
vitreous fluorophotometry the measurement of light given off by intravenously injected fluorescein that has leaked through the retinal vessels into the vitreous; done to detect the breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier, an early ocular change in diabetes mellitus.

fluor·o·pho·tom·e·try

(flōr'ō-fō-tom'ĕ-trē),
Photomultiplier tube measurement of fluorescence emitted from the interior of the eye after intravenous administration of fluorescein; used to measure the rate of formation of aqueous humor or integrity of the retinal vasculature.
