  • Air Puff Tonometer

    Noncontact tonometry, also known as air-puff tonometry, is a common method used to measure intraocular pressure (IOP) without physically touching the eye. It involves directing a gentle puff of air onto the cornea, which causes a slight indentation. The device then calculates the IOP based on the corneal response.


  • What is a Air Puff Tonometer

    The air puff tonometer, also known as a non-contact tonometer, is a device commonly used in optometry and ophthalmology to measure intraocular pressure (IOP).


    When using the air puff tonometer, the patient sits in front of the instrument, and a brief, gentle puff of air is directed at the surface of the eye.
