Intraocular pressure

Tonometry

An increase in intraocular pressure can cause serious damage to our eyes. Keeping it under control is extremely important. It should be clarified that intraocular pressure is not directly related to blood pressure, so having controlled blood pressure does not ensure correct intraocular pressure.

High intraocular pressure can lead to glaucoma, which in turn can cause irreparable damage to our optic nerve. In the worst case, uncontrolled glaucoma can lead to blindness.

The pressure is measured quickly and accurately with a tonometer in just a few seconds. If we are not within acceptable values, other complementary tests will have to be carried out to rule out possible lesions.
