Comparison of the ocular response analyzer and the Goldmann applanation tonometer for measuring intraocular pressure after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci.
Intraocular pressure of all patients at all intervals was measured by principal investigation using same Goldmann Applanation Tonometer as per following protocol:
According to the ophthalmological examination protocol, all patients were subjected to visual acuity test using Snellen chart; ocular tension measurement using Goldmann applanation tonometer; biomicroscopic examination; central 10-degree visual field test using Octopus 900 (Interzeag AG, Schlieren-Zurich, Switzerland); fundus autofluorescence photography and color fundus photograph examination using Visucam NM/FA (Carl Zeiss, Germany), and macular RGC-IPL thickness and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements using Cirrus high-definition OCT, model 5000 (Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Jena, Germany).
After obtaining informed consent from all the patients, a detailed evaluation including history, visual acuity, slit lamp examination, gonioscopy (using Zeiss 4 mirror gonioscope), intraocular pressure (by Goldmann applanation tonometer), central corneal thickness by Ultrasound pachymetry (AccuPach), fields and dilated fundus examination were performed.
Their IOPs were measured with Goldmann applanation tonometer. Results: The mean IOPs (MIOP) in pregnant women in three trimesters of pregnancy were 16.4 [+ or -] 2.4 mmHg, 14.6 [+ or -] 2.2 mmHg, and 12.2 [+ or -] 1.6 mmHg, respectively.
This visual recognition feature considers the clinical use of a Goldmann applanation tonometer.
In all patients, the IOP was measured in the sitting position by one ophthalmologist using a Goldmann applanation tonometer (Haag-Streit, Bern, Switzerland) averages of 3 times at the following hours: 10:00, 13:00, 16:00, 19:00, 22:00, 1:00, 3:00, and 7:00.
Intraocular pressure (IOP) was measured with Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) and peripapillary RNFL thickness was measured in four quadrants with SD-OCT (Topcon 3D OCT-1000 Mark II) in all subjects.
The objective of this study was to compare intraocular pressure measurement with Goldmann Applanation tonometer (GAT) and non-contact Air-Puff tonometer (APT).
The Goldmann Applanation Tonometer (GAT) is regarded as the reference standard for checking IOP.
Goldmann applanation tonometer is widely accepted current gold standard for IOP measurement.
Intraocular pressure was measured using Goldmann Applanation tonometer on slit lamp.
