—Doctor Ballin is correct in his two observations. The contact prisms of the Haag-Strait and AO applanation tonometers are interchangeable. It is also true, as stated in our report, that the vertical adjustment of the AO tonometer prism on the patient's cornea is "very difficult." In our experience some physicians readily master the technique of proper vertical adjustment of the AO applanation tonometer, whereas others, significantly fewer in number, experience difficulty.
