Tonometer Calibration

posted by: Bud O'Leary, OD

We use it all the time, but how ofter do we check the calibration on that tonometer? During my lecture, "Interpreting Ocular Hypertension," people have asked me where to find the instruction for calibration.

The instructions for calibrating the Goldmann Tonometer can be found in the Goldmann Tonometer Instruction Manual produced by Haag-Streit International. Click below to download the section from this manual that describes calibration (Appendix B: Maintenance). The calibration information begins on page 35; the English version continues on odd-numbered pages. If you want to see the complete instruction manual click on the link below to download.
