Tonometer rentals available?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 12/05/2009 - 1:03pm

Has anyone had any experience trying to rent one for couple of weeks of the kind Dave recommends?

Has anyone had reliable results using the I Care tonometer

What about the Diaton tonometer too?

I understand another type is coming out in the Spring but apparently no certainty and no details on price.

Dr. Robert Ritch say that while this is not a perfect video, "I don’t know of a better video on tonometry."

The Air Puff Tonometer Is Not Very Accurate

Submitted by dave on Wed, 04/15/2009 - 9:31pm

I believe that, when used skillfully, the air puff tonometer can be very accurate in a wide variety of conditions. It is a powerful instrument for self-tonometry. Naturally, I had something to say when I saw a message where someone wrote the following:

The air-puff [tonometer] is not very accurate at all.

I suggested they see this previous article on tonometers. In this current article, I will elaborate on my tonometer experiences.

how do self-tonometry

Submitted by nancy wolfe on Mon, 10/13/2008 - 11:37am

 

hi

i was looking at a picture of the at555 and was wondering -

how does a person sit on one side with her head in the appropriate place and push the button on the other side to start the measurement?

does one just reach around the other side and hit a button or what?

 

thanks

The Different Ways To Perform Home Eye Pressure Monitoring

Submitted by dave on Mon, 06/09/2008 - 7:17pm

I want to highlight three different approaches to performing home eye pressure monitoring (self-tonometry). Normally, I focus most of my attention in my blog on the approach I use. However, I thought it would be educational to contrast my approach with two other approaches. I'll discuss each one, but to get us started I would like to give each method a name as shown below:

When I have asthma attacks the ER admits me if [my oximetry readings] dip below 85 at all. I do go under 90% which could be one of times when the hemoglobin is unable to furnish plenty of oxygen. Maybe better management of my asthma would help.

 

I have taken an interest in monitoring oximetry while doing other IOP research, including while doing pranayama, Serene Impulse and many of the other techniques I'm testing. I don't have anything extremely interesting to report yet, however. UPDATE: see Eye Pressure Miracle.

Traveling with the AT555

Submitted by Henry on Thu, 04/03/2008 - 5:39pm

I am considering taking my AT555 to my doctor's office to check its calibration, which means, schlepping it on the train and wheeling it through the streets of Manhattan to my doctor's office and my own law office.  This will also give me the chance to take it to the office and take measurements there.  I would pack it up in the box it came in after engaging the travel lock, and move it using a portable luggage cart.  I suppose that the wear and tear will be no worse than what happened at the hands of UPS, but this makes me a little nervous.  Should I be?
