Proview Eye Pressure Monitor KitBy Dogole, Anna; Large Print Reviews,
Publication Date: October 2001
Article provides a review of the Proview Eye Pressure Monitor, which is a small device that allows the user to measure his or her interocular pressure (IOP) at home. The measurements can then be taken to an ophthalmologist, and used to determine patterns and shifts in pressure throughout the day. The device is small and plastic and looks like a syringe with a flat end. The device is used by pressing the flat end onto the top of the eyelid until the user can see a phosphene, which is a dark circle with a ring around it that one can see when pressure is applied to the eye. The author found the device to be very easy to use, though she did get consistently high IOP readings. The author stresses that the Proview Eye Pressure Monitor should be used in conjunction with regular visits to the ophthalmologist rather than as a substitute.
