Depending on your preference, you can attach an upright tonometer with an working position over the slit lamp swivel joint or mount a suspended tonometer on the stereomicroscope. They were designed on the principle introduced by Professor Goldmann. This principle represents the gold standard in tonometry. Adapters also allow the tonometers to be mounted to different slit lamps.
