Hello fellow research members,

  In an effort to fill the need for a tonometer stand which will hold our tonometers in a tilted posion at the edge of our beds I have come up with this design. David has been very helpful in explaining how this device would need to function for full effectiveness. 

Eye pressure question - how do I go about testing this further with my tonometer?

My elevated intraocular pressure in the evening seems to decrease when I lie down and read. However this could be due to other factors such as the eye drops kicking in. How would I go about testing this further?

I am new to FitEyes and am in the process of acquiring a tonometer for self use. Let me say that I am amazed that this site exists and I consider it a miracle. In my 14 years of treatment I have had the sad experience of feeling helpless while my eye doctor prescribed drops with awful side effects and then send me away for 6 months between visits. I knew my eye pressure must be higher than during eye exams because the vision kept worsening. This was realized on my own without aknowledgement from the optham.
