Purpose: To determine the prevalence of CALIBRATION errors in Goldmann applanation tonometers at Farabi Eye Hospital.Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on all tonometers in use at Farabi Eye Hospital. All Haag-Streit Goldmann applanation tonometers were checked according to the manufacturer’s method by two independent observers and by a third observer in case of mismatched results. CALIBRATION errors were classified into 6 categories of ±0.5, ±1, ±1.5, ±2, ±2.5 and more than ±2.5 mmHg. Results: Overall, 43 Goldmann tonometers were evaluated. There were 3 (7%), 10 (24.3%), 16 (38.3%), 24 (56.9%), 31 (72.1%) and 12 (27.9%) tonometers within CALIBRATION errors of ±0.5, ±1, ±1.5, ±2, ±2.5 and more than ±2.5 mmHg respectively.Conclusion: Goldmann tonometers were not within the manufacturer's recommended range (±0.5 mmHg) in 93%, and not within the acceptable range of ±2.5 mmHg in 28% of checked devices. Further study is needed to demonstrate the correlation between CALIBRATION errors and clinical errors.
