Twenty-four hour intraocular pressure measurements and home tonometry


Meier-Gibbons, Frances; Berlin, Michael S; Töteberg-Harms, Marc (2018). Twenty-four hour intraocular pressure measurements and home tonometry. Current Opinion in Ophthalmology, 29(2):111-115.

Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW IOP is the only treatable risk factor contributing to glaucoma and most management and treatment of glaucoma is based on IOP. However, current IOP measurements are limited to office hours and control of glaucoma in many patients would benefit from the ability to monitor IOP diurnally so as not to miss abnormal pressures, which occur outside of office hours Consequently, to improve patient care, the ability to enable accurate and minimally disruptive diurnal IOP monitoring would improve caring for these patients. RECENT FINDINGS The studies we selected for this review can be divided into three categories: self-/home-tonometry, continuous invasive intraocular pressure measurements, and continuous noninvasive ocular measurements. SUMMARY The desire to obtain better insight in our patients' true diurnal IOP has led to the development of home-tonometers, in addition to extraocular and intraocular continuous pressure measurement devices. All of the devices have respective advantages and disadvantages, but none to date completely fulfills the goal of providing a true diurnal IOP profile.Video abstracthttp://links.lww.com/COOP/A27.
