Measurement of Intraocular Pressure In determining whether the aniridic patient has developed glaucoma, the intraocular pressure should be assessed on a regular basis. A. Netland (Tonopen) tonometer. The Perkins handheld applanation tonometer allows the measurement of the intraocular pressure at any angle, including when the patient is lying down. These measurements require a drop of topical anesthetic to dull sensation on the cornea, and then application of the tonometer to the surface of the eye.

Netland Also, when other types of glaucoma filtration surgery have failed, clinicians may choose to use a glaucoma drainage implant. The specific type of implant varies depending on the preferences of the surgeon for the individual patient . In one study of eight eyes in five aniridia patients, the success rate was 88 % at 1 year after drainage implant surgery . In another study of eight aniridic eyes treated with Ahmed Glaucoma Valve implantation, intraocular pressure control was successful in 87 % of eyes at 12 months .
