The main aim of the study was to estimate the specificity of oculokinetic perimetry (OKP) for glaucoma case-finding in general practice. The visual fields of 185 consecutive patients aged 40 years or more were screened with OKP in one general practice. Test specificity was 94%. The OKP test was abnormal in 17 patients. At follow-up 6 of these patients had(More)
OBJECTIVE To study if the Tono-Pen, a hand held digital tonometer, can replace Schiøtz tonometry in general practice. DESIGN Tonometry with Tono-Pen and Schiøtz tonometer were compared. SETTING Group practice with two general practitioners (GPs). PATIENTS 48 consecutive patients over 40 years of age. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES The mean difference between(More)
One of the characteristics of database systems is the ability to efficiently handle large amounts of information. This characteristic must apply also when rules are introduced into database systems, resulting in so-called active database systems. Hence, active database systems need to manage both a large amount of data and many rules. One of the problems(More)
Intraocular pressure was measured in 132 consecutive patients over the age of 20 in a general practice with two general practitioners (GP). Tono-Pen tonometry was compared to Goldmann applantation tonometry in a masked, randomized design. Also, agreement between Tono-Pen measurements by the GPs and the ophthalmologist was estimated. Both mean difference(More)
A tonometry study comparing Tono-Pen with Goldmann applanation tonometry in a general practice setting revealed four cases of ocular hypertension in 132 patients. Two of the 4 patients required further ophthalmological care after referral. None of these patients, but 4 patients with no ocular hypertension, would have been referred for follow-up if referral(More)
