Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We prospectively compared dynamic contour tonometry (DCT) to Goldmann (GAT) and hand-held tonometry (HHT) in normal, ocular hypertension, and glaucoma populations. Both measurements were made on each patient within a 5-minute period during routine office exams over 4 months. While DCT is in good overall agreement with GAT and HTT, there is some systematic deviation at different pressure ranges in normal, ocular hypertension, and glaucoma populations.
