Long-term continuous monitoring of intraocular pressure in conscious primates

Ophthalmic Res. 1982;14(2):98-106. doi: 10.1159/000265179.


A technique for chronic implantation of a device for long-term continuous, quantitative monitoring of intraocular pressure (IOP) in experimental animals is presented. The methodology employed is straight forward and should be easily duplicated for experimental investigations where such monitoring might be useful. Continuous IOP data recorded from the device implanted in a conscious adult rhesus monkey are compared with continuous IOP data reported by other investigators.
