Les comparto el capítulo de libro bajo la co-autoría con el profesor Fabio Ariel Guarnieri:
Biomechanical Instrumentation in Refractive Surgery
The determination of the intraocular pressure by means of instruments is still a developing science. Several physical properties and mechanisms affect this measure due to the corneal shape and its rigidity. Experimental and analytical researches are tools to improve indirect technologies (tonometric devices) for this relevant quantity for ophthalmologic diagnosis. In this chapter the applanation contact tonometry is the main subject (biomechanical modeling, computational modeling, and calibration equations); nevertheless, new tonometric devices tend to avoid contact to diminish influence of probe shape in the contact procedure and also pain in the patient.
