An Instrument for Self-Measurement of Intraocular Pressure

Ran Zeimer, Jacob T. Wilensky

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Close monitoring of the intraocular pressure is considered important to the diagnosis and management of glaucoma. We developed an instrument that allows patients to record their own intraocular pressure. A pilot study demonstrates the good acceptance and safety of the self tonometer. Its accuracy meets standardization guidelines for such instruments.
