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.

Vitreous Fluorophotometry. The permeability of the blood-retinal barrier (BRB) was evaluated using vitreous fluorophotometry, as previously described [21].
BRB permeability was assessed by vitreous fluorophotometry on days 1, 3, 7,14, and 28 after the intravitreal administration of spermidine.
