Then, with the help of applanation tonometer
, anesthetized cornea is contacted with a tonometer
tip approximately 3.

Comparison of Intraocular Pressure Measurements in Healthy Pediatric Patients using Three Types of Tonometers
In addition to the US, the Icare HOME tonometer
has been granted sales permits in all European countries and in Australia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada and China.
In addition, tonometry measurements vary according to the tonometer
used and the examiner conducting the restraint (WHITACRE & STEIN, 1993).
There are various types of tonometers
like Goldmann Applanation tonometer
(GAT), Air Puff tonometer
(APT), Perkin's tonometer
, and Transpalpebral tonometer
Goldmann applanation tonometer
(GAT) is the "gold standard" for measuring IOP6.
The primary purpose of our study was to determine the agreement between the measurement of IOP by the TXL (suggested to be less affected by the cornea because of the small area of contact with the cornea while measuring IOP) and ORA (proposed to measure IOP independent of the corneal characters) with GAT, as a standard tonometer
, in a group of aphakic glaucoma children with a CCT greater than 600 |j.
IOP was measured with Goldmann Applanation tonometer
in both the groups.
Many authors have discussed the changes of IOP measured by various tonometer
in the sitting and supine positions.
measures the two pressure levels, then instantly computes the patient's OPA score.
IOP was measured with the standard Goldmann applanation tonometer
at the same time every morning.
