PURPOSE The PASCAL dynamic contour tonometer (DCT) adapted to the corneal geometry is a new approach for digital measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the DCT vs Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) in penetrating keratoplasties. METHOD We included 92 consecutive eyes after penetrating keratoplasty (57 without sutures, 32 with 2 running sutures, 3 with 1 running suture) in this prospective cross-sectional study. The mean outcome measurements were… CONTINUE READING
