PURPOSE With tonometers currently in use intraocular pressure is indirectly determined by measuring a physical quantity related to a specified deformation of the cornea. We present a new principle of direct, continuous, and transcorneal intraocular pressure measurement, describe its theoretical foundation, and evaluate its application on the basis of an in vitro model. METHODS On a living human eye an optimized pressure-sensitive contact surface was determined by performing pressure… CONTINUE READING
