Today was an important stage in the Tour de France. I am very excited for Floyd Landis. Of course, what also interests me at the moment is whether the excitement of watching the Tour de France has any impact on my IOP. Here are today's numbers. The usual trend I'm seeing is that my IOP is highest in the morning and lowest late at night. It does appear that my IOP jumped up after watching the exciting performance by Floyd -- in fact, I had my highest eye pressure of the entire day immediately after watching the Tour de France on TV. Who would have expected that?

These measurements were all taken with a Reichert NCT II tonometer. As usual, I used 1 drop of Xalatan in each eye at bedtime.
