Correlation between corneal and scleral pneumatonometry: an alternative method for intraocular pressure measurement
American Journal of Ophthalmology, 08/13/2013Kapamajian MA et al.
This study aims to evaluate scleral pneumatonometry as an alternative method for measuring intraocular pressure (IOP). Scleral pneumatonometry correlates positively with corneal pneumatonometry and is more accurate at lower values and in younger patients. When adjusted for age, scleral pneumatonometry may be an adequate alternative in situations where corneal measurements are impractical.
