Studies have shown that pressure phosphene tonometry (PPT) may be applied to glaucoma patients. It has the potential for patients to self-monitor the intraocular pressure (IOP) at home. We describe the successful use of this approach in a patient with Posner-Schlossman syndrome. In the first part of the study, we investigated whether our patient could use PPT accurately and reliably. In the second part of the study, our patient performed daily home self-tonometry, and was educated to seek… CONTINUE READING
