All of the tables that relate the change in volume to the IOP assume a normal ocular rigidity, and this introduces a substantial error for some measurements. , myopia,117 strong miotic therapy,117 retinal detachment surgery,118,119 or compressible gas120) give falsely low Schiøtz IOP readings. 121 4 Fig. 4-11 The Impact–Rebound Tonometer (ICare). 122 Although none of these alterations is as important during tonometry as it is during tonography (see Ch. 3), they add to the uncertainty of the measurement.

The alcohol must be allowed to evaporate before the instrument touches the eye.  The examiner retracts the patient’s lids without placing tension on the globe. The tonometer is placed directly over the eye, and when the patient relaxes, it is lowered gently onto the cornea (Fig. 10). The tonometer should be perpendicular to the corneal apex. The examiner must be careful not to press the tonometer against the globe. 25 scale units. If a wide pulse pressure is present, the center point of the fluctuation is chosen as the end point.
