Spontaneous retinal venous pulsations (SRVPs) are known to be affected by the translaminar pressure difference (TLPD). SRVPs occur less frequently and have smaller amplitudes in glaucoma patients, are absent in syndromes of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) and are used clinically to qualitatively assess ICP. Although SRVPs are influenced by the TLPD, the exact relationship between SRVPs, intraocular pressure (IOP), and ICP remains uncertain.
