Abstract

This paper presents regressions and the range of scatter of measured values for current standard ophthalmologic suction cups for the first time. The scatter range is similar to that of blood pressure measurements made by the Riva-Rocci method. Using the regressions presented here it is possible to deduce the increase in pressure from the negative pressure difference in the suction cup; this can be done with sufficient accuracy and the amount of time required is acceptable.
