  • Look Inside

We evaluated the intraocular pressure in children from 0 to 15 years of age under general anesthesia, excluding those in whom abnormal intraocular pressure were suspected. Tonometry was performed at stage III-1 of GOF anesthesia using flothane and N2O. We used Schiötz tonometer (5,184 eyes) and Perkins tonometer (5,099 eyes).

There was a consistent tendency for the intra-ocular pressure to rise with the increase in age. There was a significant difference in the mean in-traocular pressure in subjects at age 0 (15.2±3.83 mHg Schiötz) and at age 9 (16.29±3.41 mmHg) (p< 0.01).
