Elevated Intraocular Pressure Referral

In cases of raised IOP in the absence of any other signs of glaucoma the pressures should be repeated on one or two occasions using Goldmann or Perkins tonometry along with noting the angles and Humphrey (or equivalent) fields. The results are reported via the www.servicepact.co.uk website for which all T&G practices have a login. Practices can add new practitioners themselves but anyone new to the area who would like a refresher in contact tonometry should contact the LOC. There is distance learning from LOCSU available on CD covering glaucoma, visual fields, discs, SLBIO etc. This is free and attracts 8 CET points.
