Screening should consist of an eye examination consisting of gonioscopy (examination of the drainage angle), intraocular pressure measurement with goldmann applanation tonometry (this is much more accurate than the air puff mechanism), and is dilated optic nerve examination.
Optometrists, who measure eye function, can do tonometry only in certain states.
On the first visit reactive hyperemia arterial tonometry (RH-PAT) measurements were performed.
Stein J, Shuster J, Theriaque D, Silverstein J, et al. (2007) Peripheral artery tonometry demonstrates altered endothelial function in children with type 1 diabetes.
Peripheral arterial tonometry (PAT) was assessed in response to reactive hyperemia.
Measurement of endothelial function is reviewed, including catheter-based methods, venous occlusion plethysmography, high-frequency ultrasound, peripheral arterial tonometry, digital pulse amplitude tonometry, digital thermal monitoring, the
Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), using arterial tonometry, and anterior cerebral blood flow (aCBF), using extracranial ultrasound, were measured in 26 participants (67-92 years).
The tonometry test measures the inner pressure of the eye.
Exhibition of Diaton tonometer to the members of American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) presents the opportunity for BiCOM to display the incomparable unique qualities of trans-palpebral and tras-scleral Diaton tonometry - tonometry through the Eyelid.
Tonometer Diaton allows for measurement of eye pressure through the eyelid - No contact with cornea, No anesthetic drops, hand-held tonometry through the eyelid
