Abstract

Eighty subjects between 21 and 48 years of age were measured for lOP on both the Keeler Pulsair and Reichert NCT tonometers. Statistical analysis revealed a high correlation (r=-0.82) and no significant difference in the measured lOP between these two instruments. Both devices proved to be clinically useful m the measurement of intraocular pressure, especially as a screening tool.
