    Applanation tonometry - the thingie with the blue light. Those are soooo cool. I had to ask how it worked too, and I'm just a lowly analytical chemist.

    When I forst got glasses in the mid 70's, I had a opthalmologist that I swear was trained in the 19th century. I swear that he had a device that dropped a small ball bearing on your eye from a fixed height and he looked to see how high the rebound was. It was not a test that you wanted to have him do twice.

    Ah....I was a "glaucoma suspect" until the Dr got a new gadget that determines cornea thickness...which allows them to calibrate the pressure test...luckily I have a thick cornea...so the pressure reading got reduced and I'm no longer a glaucoma suspect

    You need THC instead of TSP if you have glaucoma.
