Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the IOP using Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) and the Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and ocular hypertension (OHT) eyes.

Setting:

Service Of Ophthalmology, University Hospital Príncipe De Asturias

Methods:

Observational, cross sectional study. Newly diagnosed, untreated POAG and OHT eyes were included.

Results:

51 POAG and 34 OHT eyes were analyzed. We found that IOPcc was significantly higher than GAT-IOP in POAG (p=0.0002) while we did not find any significant difference between both tonometers in OHT (p=0.1).

Conclusions:

GAT in untreated POAG eyes seems to underestimate the real IOP, while GAT tonometry in OHT eyes seems to be quite accurate.

Financial Disclosure:

NONE
