Having had a very interesting conversation with another tonometer user today concerning questions related to the corneal and glaucoma, I decided to post this article I recently came across.

Here is the full pdf link..

Role of corneal thickness in glaucoma becoming clearer

LASIK and C3R operations

Hi, I am Sneha, originally from India and now residing in the US. I was diagnosed with short-sight when I was 14 years of age. I have been wearing soft contact lenses since then. When I turned 23, I got both my eyes LASIK operated in India from a popular eye hospital. I had no problem with my eyes for almost a year. But later on I faced slight eye irritation, redness and sometimes double vision when I sit in front of the computer or when I go outdoors. I am a software engineer by profession which ineveitably requires me to work with the computer for long hours.

Test Results

. Today was my follow-up appointment with my Orthomo to discuss the results of my Visual Field Test and Optic Nerve Imaging Photos that were taken last week. To back up a little it was early this summer at my regular eye exam with my Optomotrist that it was discovered that my eye pressure was high and needed to be evaluated by a doctor. The Optomotrist measured 29 IOP.

"My doctor told me that thickness of the eye affects pressure and that because of the thickness of mine, he subtracts 5 from total.  Has anyone else heard this?"
