PURPOSE An improved induction-based impact method for measuring intraocular pressure is presented. METHODS A light probe containing a permanent magnet is launched towards the eye using a solenoid. The probe hits the eye and bounces back. The same solenoid, inside which the probe moves, is used to detect the movement and impact of the probe, because the moving magnet induces voltage in the solenoid. In the clinical study, the Goldmann applanation tonometer was used as a standard. Handheld and… CONTINUE READING
