Measurement of the Intraocular Pressure with the "Eyelid Tonometer"-TGD c-01 in Comparison to Applanation and Pneumotonometry
Sandner D., Pillunat L.E., Kostov S.
Purpose: An irregular corneal surface compromises IOP measurements by Goldmann applanation tonometry. For these patients an accurate measurement without corneal contact would be desirable. The new eyelid tonometer TGDc-01 measures IOP without corneal contact through the eyelid. The aim of the study was to evaluate the accuracy of the eyelid tonometer compared to Goldmann applanation tonometry and pneumotonometry by OBF in subjects without corneal alterations.
