PURPOSE Rabbits are commonly used for the evaluation of drugs and surgery to lower intraocular pressure (IOP). The accuracy of intraocular pressure measurement is therefore critical in the analysis of data and subsequent extrapolation to humans. The purpose of this study was to establish the most reliable technique, from several currently available methods, of measuring IOP in New Zealand White rabbits. METHODS The IOPs of 11 healthy New Zealand White rabbits were measured with a fluid-filled… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Accuracy of intraocular pressure measurements in dogs using two different tonometers and plano therapeutic soft contact lenses.
TLDR
This study suggests that the TonoPen XL(®) is a useful tonometer for dogs wearing therapeutic contact lenses, and importantly, contact lenses would not need to be removed prior to IOP measurement.
Twenty-four-hour measurement of IOP in rabbits using rebound tonometer.
TLDR
The IOP obtained by RBT underestimated the true IOP but the RBT had a good repeatability in IOP measurements, which may be beneficial to the intervention therapy observation of glaucoma research in rabbits.
Rapid and Accurate Pressure Sensing Device for Direct Measurement of Intraocular Pressure
TLDR
This work combines a high-resolution pressure microsensor with 30- and 33-gauge Luer lock needles to provide IOP measurements via a microcontroller and USB interface to a computer and shows a linear relationship with changes in imposed pressure.
Comparison of a rebound and an applanation tonometer for measuring intraocular pressure in normal rabbits.
TLDR
Early in the day, the IOP of rabbits was higher than later in theday, regardless of the tonometer used, and the Tono-Pen Avia recorded higher levels of IOP compared with the Tonovet(®).
Suitability and calibration of a rebound tonometer to measure IOP in rabbit and pig eyes.
TLDR
The Icare tonometer TAO1 can be utilized for intraocular pressure (IOP) determination in rabbit and porcine eyes when measured values are corrected with the appropriate linear function.
Evaluation of the Perkins handheld applanation tonometer in the measurement of intraocular pressure in dogs and cats.
TLDR
There was an excellent correlation between the IOP values obtained from direct ocular manometry and the Perkinstonometer in dogs and cats and could be in the future a new alternative for the diagnosis of glaucoma in veterinary ophthalmology.
Repeatability, reproducibility, and agreement of three tonometers for measuring intraocular pressure in rabbits
TLDR
The results show that among the three tonometers tested, theTonoVet tonometer is best for use in rabbits while the TonoLab should be avoided.
Glaucoma Experimental Induction in Rabbits New Zealand
TLDR
Three methods of induction were compared of glaucoma experimentally in rabbits based on the increase of the pressure intraocular (PEEP) and macrocospic changes (edema, atrophy) and the blindness associated with the problems of edema and atrophy was found.

Comparison of three tonometers for measuring intraocular pressure in rabbits.
TLDR
The Tono-pen XL is the tonometer of choice for measuring IOP in rabbits within the range of IOP 3 to 30 mm Hg, and all tonometers were less accurate when the IOP was elevated markedly.
The ocular blood flow tonograph: a new instrument for the measurement of intraocular pressure in rabbits.
TLDR
The calibration experiments showed that a good correlation exists between OBFT measurements and manometric readings of IOP and there was no significant difference between the IOP measured by either instrument in a group of rabbits displaying a range of different IOPs.
The circadian rhythm of the intraocular pressure in the New Zealand White rabbit.
TLDR
A circadian rhythm of the rabbit intraocular pressure was found and the data suggest that the maximum intraocular Pressure may be biphasic with maximum values occurring between 0800 and 1100 and 1600 and 1900.
Effect of photorefractive keratectomy on the accuracy of pneumatonometer readings in rabbits.
TLDR
Photorefractive keratectomy as high as 15 D/5 mm had only a minor effect on pneumatonometer readings in rabbits, indicating that the elastic properties of the cornea related to the accuracy of pneumatonometry were not significantly altered.
Effect of corneal thickness on intraocular pressure measurements with the pneumotonometer, Goldmann applanation tonometer, and Tono-Pen.
TLDR
The Tono-Pen is least affected by CCT when used to measure IOP in eyes with normal corneas, and the OBF pneumotonometer appears to be more affected by variation in CCT than the Goldmann tonometer.
Clinical Comparison of the Ocular Blood Flow Tonograph and the Goldmann Applanation Tonometer
TLDR
The 11.2 version of the OBF tonograph is more accurate than the 8.2 versions and measures IOP in a manner that corresponds well to the Goldmann applanation tonometer in the 8–10mm Hg and 21–29mm HG intervals.
