Abstract

A hand-held noncontact tonometer (Pulsair, Keeler Ltd., UK) was tested in 42 children, from 5 months to 12 years of age. At least 1 intraocular pressure (IOP) reading was obtained in all of the 84 eyes studied, whereas with a Goldman applanation tonometer measurements could be obtained in only 26 eyes (14 subjects). Time required for examination with the Pulsair was quite variable and related to age (p
