PURPOSE To investigate the accuracy of intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement over amniotic membrane patching on human ocular surface using Tono-Pen tonometry. METHODS The IOP of 28 normal eyes in 14 volunteers (mean age, 27.6 years; range, 25-34) was measured by a handy applanation tonometer and the Tono-Pen XL. Then, a single layer of amniotic membrane (approximately 50 microm) was placed onto the corneal surface of the volunteers and the IOP was again measured using the Tono-Pen XL… CONTINUE READING
