A training centre for intraocular pressure metrology
Keywords:training centre; metrological traceability; eye-tonometer; intraocular pressure
AbstractThe eye-tonometers are the important medical devices with measuring function which are necessary for the screenings of the intraocular hypertension (a serious risk factor for the glaucoma). However, it is not an easy task to ensure their correct metrological traceability. There is needed not only a wide range of various equipment but also the relevant know-how. Hence, a training centre for this quantity was established at the Czech Metrology Institute (CMI) within the framework of a smart specialisation concept for the intraocular pressure (IOP) metrology. The paper briefly outlines its history, scope, methodologies and future development plans
