Hi, I just got an "Ahmed Implant" in my left eye after 3 other surgeries failed to control pressure. I would like to self check the pressure at home with a portable, non intrusive device such as air-puff device. Since a family member will have to do it without the numbing drops, I would prefer a non-contact instrument. I was wondering if such an instrument exists in the market place. By the way I have high pressure in the right eye too but am using drops (cosopt) to control it. Thanks. Ravi

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

As of now there is no tonometer (instrument used to measure intraocular pressure) available in the market for public use. There are portable air puff tonometers but would require training for use and are costly too. ICare tonometer is more user friendly and can give good comparable results.

Customer:

Thank you. I'll ask my doctor if he has access to such a device.
