• corneal
  • Measured values of intraocular pressure are influenced by corneal thickness and rigidity. (wikipedia.org)
  • When an area of 3.06 mm (0.120 in) has been flattened, the opposing forces of corneal rigidity and the tear film are roughly approximate and cancel each other out allowing the pressure in the eye to be determined from the force applied. (wikipedia.org)
  • The probe is placed on the pre-corneal tear film on the central cornea (see gallery) and the integrated piezoresistive pressure sensor automatically begins to acquire data, measuring IOP 100 times per second. (wikipedia.org)
  • elevation
  • Another study found that the magnitude of increase in intraocular pressure correlates with the intraoral resistance associated with the instrument, and linked intermittent elevation of intraocular pressure from playing high-resistance wind instruments to incidence of visual field loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • Topical apraclonidine is administered at a concentration of 1% for the prevention and treatment of post-surgical intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation and 0.5% for short-term adjunctive therapy in patients on maximally tolerated medical therapy who require additional reduction of IOP. (wikipedia.org)
  • retinal
  • The intraocular pressure (IOP) increase is one of the favourable factors in the apoptosis or death of the retinal nervous cells and is responsable for the progressive lost of the same cells. (arvojournals.org)
  • lower
  • The range of intraoral pressure involved in various classes of ethnic wind instruments, such as Native American flutes, has been shown to be generally lower than Western classical wind instruments. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) utilizing an experimental lotion containing 0.005% Latanoprost that is applied to the outside of one eyelid. (clinicaltrials.gov)
