Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP) using Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT), Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) and Corvis ST after treatment with prostaglandin analogues (PGAs) in naive eyes.

Setting:

Hospital Universitario Príncipe De Asturias (Madrid), Spain

Methods:

Prospective, cohort, observational study. GAT-IOP, ORA cornea compensated IOP (IOPCC) and Corvis IOP were measured before and after 3 months of topical PGAs treatment.

Results:

Fifty-nine eyes were analyzed. We did not find any statistically significant difference between drug induced IOP decrease between GAT-IOP, and IOPcc. IOP decrease measured by Corvis was significantly different (p= 0.0001).

Conclusions:

The IOP decrease induced by PGAs treatment is different depending on the tonometer used.
