Intraocular Pressure (IOP)

At Khyber Eye Foundation, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive eye care services to our patients, and one essential aspect of our diagnostic capabilities is Intraocular Pressure (IOP) testing.

Intraocular Pressure (IOP) testing is a crucial diagnostic procedure used to measure the pressure within the eye. Elevated intraocular pressure can be indicative of conditions such as glaucoma, a group of eye diseases that can lead to irreversible vision loss if left untreated. By accurately measuring IOP, our skilled ophthalmologists can detect early signs of glaucoma and other eye conditions, allowing for timely intervention and treatment to preserve vision.

During an IOP test, our experienced technicians utilize various methods to measure the pressure within the eye. This may include the use of a tonometer, which delivers a gentle puff of air onto the surface of the eye to measure its resistance. Alternatively, a handheld device called a tonopen may be used to directly measure the pressure by gently touching the surface of the eye.

The results of the IOP test are essential in guiding the management of various eye conditions, particularly glaucoma. By monitoring changes in intraocular pressure over time, our ophthalmologists can tailor treatment plans to effectively manage the condition and prevent further vision loss.

At Khyber Eye Foundation, we prioritize the early detection and management of eye conditions to ensure the long-term health and vision of our patients. Our commitment to excellence in eye care extends to the meticulous administration of Intraocular Pressure (IOP) testing, allowing us to deliver accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans to optimize visual outcomes.
