      CONCLUSIONS: Measurements with the DCT showed good concordance with intracameral IOP. At IOP of 15 mm Hg, the mean difference between IOP measured by DCT and intracameral IOP was -0.02 +/-
      1.32 mm Hg; at 20 mm Hg it was -0.2 +/- 1.44 mm Hg and at 35 mm Hg, -0.84 +/- 1.90 mm Hg.
      75 eyes of 75 patients undergoing phacoemulsification were examined. Before phacoemulsification, the anterior chamber was cannulated at the temporal corneal limbus. In a closed system the IOP was directly
      set to 15, 20, or 35 mm Hg with a manometric water column. IOP measurements taken by DCT were compared to intracameral measurements with a precision reference pressure sensor. This paper provides
      the conclusive proof: PASCAL measures true IOP!

 Original Paper Optom Vis Sci. 2008 Jun;85(6):451-6.
PMID 18521023
      Contact lens-induced corneal edema caused a small underestimation error in IOP measurements by the Pascal DCT, and an overestimation error in Goldmann tonometry measurements. The OPA measurement
      provided by the Pascal DCT is insensitive to corneal edema-induced changes in corneal properties.

 Review Paper Surv Ophthalmol. 2008 May-Jun;53(3):203-18
PMID 18501267
      In this article, previously reported theoretical equations about the effects of corneal topography, modulus of elasticity, and tear film on Goldmann applanation tonometric IOP readings were reviewed, and their
      discrepancies with clinical or experimental data were analyzed. Thereafter, new tonometers such as the dynamic contour tonometer, the rebound tonometer, and the ocular response analyzer were compared with
      the Goldmann applanation tonometer and other popular tonometers.
      Recent epidemiologic studies show that a difference of only 1 mm Hg in the mean IOP may be critical enough to determine the visual field prognosis in patients with glaucoma. However, the Goldmann
      applanation tonometer, which is current gold standard, is not precise enough to measure the true IOP within an error of 1 mm Hg.

PMID 18329627
      Pneumatonometry and DCT IOP measurements were significant higher than GAT (P < .01) The mean IOP +/- standard deviation (SD) was 15.9 +/- 4.9 mm Hg for GAT, 20.3 +/- 4.5 mm Hg for pneumatonometry,
      and 19.8 +/- 4.4 mm Hg for DCT.
      Falsely elevated GAT, as expected in thick corneas, was not demonstrated after DSEK. ... On the contrary: GAT reads too low! (soft cornea!)

PMID 18439682
      PURPOSE: To examine the roles of genetic and environmental factors in corneal hysteresis and ocular pulse amplitude by performing a classic twin study. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated that additive
      genetic influences explained most of the individual differences in corneal hysteresis and ocular pulse amplitude among these twins.

 Original Paper Ophthalmologe. 2008 Apr 27. (Epub ahead of print)
PMID 18438633
      There was a positive correlation between GAT and CCT that did not exist for IOPcc and DCT values. However, IOPcc and DCT differed significantly in Bland-Altman analysis (p<0.01). Furthermore, these two
      IOP values differed significantly with respect to CH and the level of IOP. CONCLUSION: Because IOPcc is not a primarily measured variable but also takes CH into account, a direct comparison of DCT and
      IOPcc values is not acceptable, and a simple correction factor may not be valid.

 Original Paper Cornea. 2008 Apr;27(3):305-10.
PMID 18362658
      PURPOSE: To compare the performance of dynamic contour tonometry (DCT) and Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) in measuring intraocular pressure in eyes with irregular corneas. CONCLUSIONS:
      DCT measured significantly higher intraocular pressures than GAT in keratoconus and postkeratoplasty eyes. DCT and GAT measures varied considerably, and DCT was not less dependent on biomechanical
      properties of irregular corneas than GAT.

      Diurnal variation in axial length and anterior eye biometrics, while simultaneously measuring IOP and OPA with dynamic contour tonometry in human subjects. axial length, IOP, and OPA are highest in the
      morning, lowest in the evening. IOP amplitude 3.1 mmHg; OPA amplitude 1.3 mmHg.
      Intraocular pressure and ocular pulse amplitude were also found to undergo significant diurnal change. Conclusion: Axial length undergoes significant variation over a 24 hour period. Associations exist between
      the change in axial length and the change in IOP as measured by dynamic contour tonometry. 15 healthy subjects Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory, School of Optometry, Queensland University of

 Original Paper Eye. 2008 Mar 28. [Epub ahead of print]
PMID 18369376
      Conclusion: Statistically significant agreement between both devices was reached only at intermediate pachymetry readings in contrast with other studies that show excellent global agreement between GAT and
      When CCT values ranged between 540 and 545 mum, the agreement between both tonometers was optimal (ICC 0.54 and Lin 0.61). Outside these pachymetry values, agreement between both tonometers
      diminished dramatically ... because GAT is CCT-dependent!

 Original Paper Eye (2008), 1–6
PMID 18309334
      Purpose: To determine in vivo whether a pharmacologically induced change in intraocular pressure (IOP) leads to measurable changes in axial eye length and whether there is a difference between glaucoma
      patients and control subjects. Conclusion: ocular rigidity is increased in patients with established glaucoma
      IOP drops after intake of acetazolamide.

PMID 18222191
      PURPOSE: To compare the measurements of intraocular pressure (IOP) with dynamic contour tonometry (DCT) and Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) in eyes with corneal graft and to evaluate the
      influence of corneal thickness (CCT), corneal curvature (CC), and astigmatism on these methods
      "... DCT provides IOP measurements on deep lamellar and penetrating keratoplasties which can be used in the clinical practice."

PMID 18259205
      Purpose: To assess the agreement in the measurement of intraocular pressure obtained by dynamic contour tonometer (DCT) and noncontact tonometer (NCT) in patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension,
      to investigate the effect of corneal thickness on pressure readings by both instruments, and to assess the reproducibility of dynamic contour tonometer.MethodsNCT and DCT measurements were made on 104
      eyes of 104 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (n=75) or ocular hypertension (n=29), and agreement was assessed by means of Bland-Altman plots. e. DCT measurements, unlike NCT measurements,
      did not depend on corneal thickness.
      Interobserver and intraobserver variations for dynamic contour tonometer were assessed in 41 eyes of 41 patients. The coefficient of repeatability for DCT was 0.92 (95% CI 0.85-0.96, P=0.001).

      he authors evaluated the reproducibility/repeatability (RP) of DCT compared to GAT, a prerequisite for its introduction into clinical routine. CONCLUSIONS: Short- and long-term reproducibility of DCT is
      comparable to that of GAT. GAT is more affected by CCT than DCT, measuring higher IOPs in eyes with higher central corneal thickness.

PMID 18193267
       CONCLUSION: A small ocular pulse amplitude, as measured with a dynamic contour tonometer, is correlated with moderate to severe glaucomatous visual field loss and might be a risk factor for the
      development of glaucomatous visual field defects.

PMID 18301285
      Dynamic contour tonometry provides intraocular pressure readings that are less dependent on corneal properties than Goldmann applanation tonometry. Rebound tonometry appears to correlate well with
      Goldmann tonometry and can be used without topical anesthesia.
