To the Editor The Rational Clinical Examination article by Dr Hollands and colleagues1 reviewed the risk factors associated with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Accurate measurement of intraocular pressure is one of the most important parameters in the diagnosis and management of POAG and may be performed by generalist physicians under certain conditions. Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) is the method most commonly used by ophthalmologists to measure intraocular pressure.
