Intraocular pressure is measured by Home iCare performed by the study nurse, by the patient it self and by Goldmann applanation tonometry.
Device: Home iCare (study nurse)
the intraocular pressure is measured by iCare performed by the study nurse
Device: goldmann applanation tonometry
the intraocular pressure is measured by goldmann applanation tonometry
Device: home iCare (by patient)
the intraocular pressure is measured by the iCare performed by the patient him self
- Intra-ocular pressure with Home ICare and Goldmann Applanation Tonometer. [ Time Frame: immediate comparison, no time frame required ]
Patients eye pressure measurement with both devices.
- Home ICare measurement by study nurse compared to Home ICare by patient compared to Goldmann ATO by study nurse (once for every patient)
- 4 times daily: measurement Goldmann ATO (by resident in ophthalmology) and home Icare (by patient)on same moment
- Patient Comfort [ Time Frame: 1 day hospitalisation ]The comfort of the patients will be checked with both methods (home iCare and goldmann applanation tonometry) and look if the patient has a preference for one of them. Pain and discomfort were scaled from 0 to 5 (0 = none,1-2 = slight, 3-4 = moderate, 5 = severe) for both tonometers, and patients were asked which tonometer they preferred.
