In Reply The criterion standard for measurement of intraocular pressure is GAT. Dr Huang and colleagues state that general physicians should be cautious when using a commonly accepted threshold intraocular pressure of 22 mm Hg if measurements were not performed using GAT. All studies in our meta-analysis used GAT under rigorous conditions. The results of our meta-analysis showed that intraocular pressure measured with GAT is not a useful single screening tool for glaucoma even when measured under study conditions.
