The E.B. Meyrowitz Tonometer is a old tonometer used to measure intraocular pressure (IOP) on the eye. IOP is the pressure of the fluid inside the eye. Elevated IOP is a major risk factor for glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness.

 

The E.B. Meyrowitz Tonometer is a handheld device that uses a plunger to apply pressure to the cornea, the clear front part of the eye. The amount of pressure required to flatten the cornea is measured and used to calculate the IOP.

 

The E.B. Meyrowitz Tonometer is no longer in common use, but it is still prized by collectors of vintage medical instruments. It is also still used in some parts of the world where newer tonometers are not available.

 

Here are some of the features of the E.B. Meyrowitz Tonometer:

  • Handheld device
  • Uses a plunger to apply pressure to the cornea
  • Measures the amount of pressure required to flatten the cornea
  • Calculates the intraocular pressure (IOP)

 

The E.B. Meyrowitz Tonometer is a valuable historical artifact and a reminder of the progress that has been made in the field of ophthalmology.
