The DCT and contact lenses – Daniela Nosch & Malcolm Long (8:34)
Malcolm Long speaks with Daniela Nosch from the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland. A study carried out by Daniela and her colleagues in 2011 suggested that the presence of contact lenses does not alter the accuracy of dynamic contour tonometry (DCT) measurements, which are also independent of corneal thickness and rigidity. The interview touches on Daniela’s findings and compares this type of tonometry to Goldmann applanation tonometry. Daniela then discusses the benefits it can have for some groups of patients and for optometrists in countries not registered to use diagnostic drugs.
