In order to overcome the problem of the postoperative IOP underestimation with the Goldmann tonometer, some authors suggest that the measurement (in myopic eyes) is done in the periphery of the cornea where less corneal tissue is removed.
Some studies comparing the Tono-Pen XL[R] tonometer with other tonometers, such as the Perkins[R] and TonoVet[R] tonometers in rabbits (KALESNYKAS & UUSITALO, 2007) and the Goldmann tonometer in humans (FRENKEL et al., 1988; IESTER et al., 2001) suggested a lower accuracy of the Tono-Pen XL[R] tonometer for high IOP values.

Previous studies have shown that intraocular pressure (IOP), as measured by the Goldmann tonometer, needs to be corrected according to central corneal thickness (CCT) values in order to obtain a better IOP estimate (1-8).
Results obtained by NCT using the Pulsair instrument were then compared within those obtained using the Goldmann tonometer in each of the 50 patients tested to determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive value of NCT as a screening tool for glaucoma.
