Purpose: To evaluate agreement among Goldmann, Tonopen and Diaton transpalpebral tonometers.
Conclusions: The measures of Diaton transpalpebral tonometer shows satisfactory reproducibility and their concordance with the Goldmann, mainly in the patients with karatoconus on which the pressure values were higher than the Goldmann, may trend to a measure value closer to the real intraocular pressure, as Goldmann tonometer underestimates the intraocular pressures on patients with keratoconus.
