Noncontact Tonometry A cited advantage of air puff tonometry is the absence of contact with the measured eye, which in theory makes the exam more comfortable as no anesthetic drops are needed, and there is no risk of a corneal abrasion by untrained personnel. In reality, many patients find the anticipation of multiple puffs uncomfortable, which can lead to false highpressure measurements because of lid pressure. The air puff generates aerosol that potentially distributes infectious agents [118].
