• 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)
  • glaucomatous
  • Viscoelastics tend to trap produced debris or gas bubbles and diminish visualization.By ablating trabecular meshwork, aqueous get access to Schlemm's canal , therefore reducing intraocular pressure which is major risk factor for glaucomatous vision loss. (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
  • Intraocular pressure in children is normally lower than that of adults. (livestrong.com)
  • 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)
  • device
  • The researchers have been testing the device in a laboratory setting and have been able to achieve pressure resolution down to 1 mm Hg. (medgadget.com)
  • The current device can be implanted along with prosthetic intraocular lenses, but the researchers are looking into being able to implant the device with on its own. (medgadget.com)
  • The device also measures the variation in pressure that occurs with the cardiac cycle. (wikipedia.org)
