The most commonly used tonometers
in the veterinary field are the rebound tonometer
, (TonoVet) and the applanation tonometer
Our results indicated that there was no statistically significant difference in IOP measured in sitting and supine position with the Icare PRO tonometer
. Therefore, we believe the Icare PRO tonometer
may be appropriate for IOP monitoring in glaucoma patients who are confined to bed.
To prevent EKC transmission in eye care settings, recommended practices include the use of disposable tonometer
tips, disinfectants efficacious against adenoviruses for tonometers
and slit lamps, and single-use eye drops when available.
The Corvis tonometer
allows for the acquisition of data in different formats such as a video (*.avi), a sequence of images (*.jpg), or a losslessly compressed archive (*.U12).
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.
The pneumatonometer applanates a smaller area of the corneal surface than the Goldmann tonometer
In this study, rebound tonometer
was used because it is portable, has a lower platinum, and its impact on the eye is fast and minimal.
The IOP was measured first with APT (Canon Full Auto Tonometer
TX-F, Japan) followed by its measurement with GAT (HAAG-STRIET AT 900, Koeniz Switzerland)
Keywords: Central corneal thickness (CCT), Goldmann Applanation Tonometer
(GAT), Intraocular pressure (IOP), Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG), Pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXF)
The time interval between the tests of each tonometer
was about 15 minutes.
The ICare rebound tonometer
, which is based on the induction rebound or impact principle, monitors the motion parameters of the probe colliding with an eye.
The Swiss research team used a device called the dynamic contour tonometer
to check the OPA of 67 patients who were assumed to have CAS.
