    Measuring IOP when patient has n95 mask

    How do u accomplish this? My optometrist had me look to the side and then move my eyes so they are looking forward. I'm pretty sure the readings were too low.
    He was using slit lamp.

    I'm guessing no. This is a question for you to discuss with your eye care provider.

    We can't even get pts to cover their noses (apparently they forget they're actually attached to their lungs too!), but here's one who covers his eyes with an N95 - making IOPs..."difficult".
