Abstract

Ocular disease appears to be a common issue in anurans. Intraocular pressures were measured for six species of free-ranging anurans in central Oklahoma. No significant differences were identified between left or right eyes. There was a significant negative relationship between the weight of the anuran and intraocular pressure. The intraocular pressure range for the six species was 3–10 mm Hg. Tonometry values in anurans are, to the authors' knowledge, previously unreported and this study provides initial information on intraocular pressure measurement in anurans.
