Answer

The gold standard for IOP measurement is Goldman applanation. Intraocular pressure should be measured during every follow-up visit after PKP.

Various methods can be used to measure IOP in the postoperative period, including digital palpation and applanation tonometry with a Mackay-Marg electronic applanation tonometer, pneumatic applanation tonometer, Tono-Pen, or dynamic contour tonometer. [5, 6, 7]
