Abstract

There is no perfect tonometer, and clinicians must choose which to use in their daily practice, balancing accuracy, precision, convenience, and cost. Clinicians should recognize that a single IOP measurement is but an often error-prone snapshot of a widely varying physiologic parameter. IOP data should only be used in the context of the overall clinical picture.
