Intra Ocular Pressure (IOP) check
What is the importance of IOP?
Intraocular pressure (IOP) is a certain pressure which is maintained in the eye by fluids.
This pressure of the eye should be controlled for the special purpose of preserving sight in sight-threatening conditions such as glaucoma since the condition can cause asymptomatic and irreversible loss of vision if poorly treated or neglected.
The effect of glaucoma treatment on the eye pressure may not always be constant and needs to be regularly measured. Hence, the intra ocular pressure check is an integral part of the examination and regular follow ups for a glaucoma patient.
Intraocular pressure (IOP) is measured with a Non-Contact Tonometer (NCT). It gently blows a puff of air toward the eye.
This IOP check examination is done by our Optometrists by prior appointment.
At our centres we maintain records of your eye condition including the eye pressure for comparison on following visits.
