Rheoencephalic and ophthalmodynamographic studies were conducted on groups of young people aged 22-38, heavy smokers and non smokers. In both groups there were found haemodynamic variations of a vascularconstrictive character with quantitative differences only. It is believed that in young people the influence of smoke is mediated by vascular, parietal and biohumoral mechanisms; in elderly people it is necessary to take into account the interference of oxygenation, as well as of possible concomitant cardiorespiratory pathology. Statistically, there is in aged people a relationship between cigarette smoking and cerebrovascular affections.
