Oxfordshire Intraocular Eye Pressure(IOP) Refinement

Across Oxfordshire many Optometric Practices are participating in a scheme to refine the IOP measurements for patients who have raised pressures.

IOPs are measured by your optometrist using a piece of equipment called a tonometer. Tonometers can either be Non-contact tonometers(NCT) which you will recognise as the " puff of air" test, or contact tonometers which require anaesthetic to be placed in the eye and then a small probe place against the cornea to measure the pressure. The Gold standard or "best" measurement is the latter, however we do not wish to have to anaesthetise every patient to have there pressures measured, when the NCTs provide a very accurate alternative.

However to cut down the number of unnecessary referrals to the Eye Hospital when the pressures are high using a NCT, it would be best practice to check the pressures first using a contact tonometer.

The scheme provides funding for accredited optometrists to perform this test in the community.
