dc.description.abstract Using Goldmann tonometry, twenty eyes were measured for intraocular pressure with and without Acuvue 2 soft contact lenses. Four different lens powers (+3.000, -3.000, +1.500, and -1.500) were utilized during the study. The intent was to see the effect soft contact lenses had on Goldmann IOP measurements. Furthermore, the effect of varying contact lens power and IOP measurement was also evaluated. The end result showed that the power of the lens and the presence of the lens itself on the eye had no significant effect on tonometry readings. en_US
