Non Contact Tonometry
A non contact tonometry or “air puff” tonometry is a non invasive eye care instrument to test the pressure inside your eye, called intraocular pressure (IOP).
The eye care diagnostic tool is used to check for glaucoma, an eye disease that can cause blindness by damaging the eye nerve, called optic nerve at the back of the eye. Damage to the optic nerve may be caused by improper drainage of fluid in the eye.
Tonometry measures IOP by recording the resistance of your eye to pressure that is released from air puff. Our eye care centre utilises non invasive eye care tonometry, so no eye drop for anaesthesia is needed.
