Air-Puff Tonometers

Challenges and insights
Professor Robert Koprowski


Air-Puff Tonometers presents the latest achievements and research works in the area of intraocular pressure measurement by the air-puff method. This method is used, for example, by the Corvis® ST, owing to the ultra-high-speed Scheimpflug camera, which records corneal deformation being the response to an air puff. The text also covers:

• New methods of image analysis and processing
• New engineering methods used in devices
• Method reducing measurement (intraocular pressure) errors
• The change in the blood pulsation phase during measurement that affects the results in different ways
• Other IOP measurement methods (using the air-puff method)
• Medical and engineering problems with the air-puff method

This book is recommended reading for those involved in the analysis and processing of images and wanting to expand their knowledge of contemporary diagnostic methods and image analysis.

About Editors

Robert Koprowski gained his PhD in 2003. He is currently based at the Institute of Computer Science and Department of Biomedical Computer Systems at the University of Silesia. For 20 years, he has been working on the analysis and processing of biomedical images, with particular emphasis on the full automation of measurement for a large inter-individual variability of patients.
