age and social level of the patient. There are other options, such as
transpalpebral tonometers, but they lack reliability and the correlation
with applanation tonometry is very poor.
Conclusions We are hopeful that, in the future, we will be able to use devices
with sensors that will provide us with accurate and complex

access to additional information on ocular biomechanical properties
which will probably help us to better evaluate and understand the
different susceptibility to IOP-related damage. In the future, our work
will be to filter all this additional information and determine what
parameters are most relevant to improve the clinical management of
our glaucoma patients. n
