Noun1.IOP - pressure exerted by the fluids inside the eyeball; regulated by resistance to the outward flow of aqueous humor; "glaucoma can result from increased intraocular pressure"
force per unit area, pressure, pressure level - the force applied to a unit area of surface; measured in pascals (SI unit) or in dynes (cgs unit); "the compressed gas exerts an increased pressure"

Khouri, M.D., from the Rutgers New Jersey School of Medicine in Newark, and colleagues randomly assigned patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (unmedicated baseline IOP >20 to <30 mm Hg at 8:00 a.m.) to either netarsudil ophthalmic solution 0.02 percent once daily (186 patients) or timolol ophthalmic solution 0.5 percent twice daily (186 patients).
Studies of glaucoma in Japan suggest that patients have baseline IOP that is generally lower than patients in other populations, hence the baseline IOP range in this study begins at 15 mmHg, lower than is typical of glaucoma studies in the United States or Europe.
3 June 2019 - Idaho, US-based recovery services provider Southworth Associates has acquired IOP Consulting, Scott Gilbert's Mississippi-based, behavioural health consulting firm, to increase size and capabilities of Southworth, the company said.
IOP in all five groups were measured before then immediately and 5 minutes after airway intervention using a Tono-Pen (Tono-Pen AVIA[R] Tonometer, Reichert Technologies Distributor, USA).
Although pigeons have been used in various fields, such as an avian model for research, studies on pigeons are scarce, especially regarding their intraocular pressure (IOP).
Positional changes in IOP may be important in the development and course of glaucoma.
Hence, this study was undertaken to determine the effect of tobacco smoking on IOP
IVTA 4mg/0.1ml was injected and IOP was measured at one week, one month, three months and six months in both groups of patients.
a) The type of drug shown is effective at reducing IOP but may potentially result in more systemic side effects than other IOP lowering drops
IOP of right and left eye was measured routinely one time (between 1000-1200 hrs) through Gold mann aplanation tonometer.
Glaucoma is a degenerative disease of the optic nerve, affecting millions of people [1] and causing huge economic burdens worldwide.[2] Neuroprotection strategies (including gene therapy and medical therapy), which alleviate the deterioration of glaucomatous optic neuropathy, have shown promising effects in vitro and in glaucoma animal models but are still in preclinical stages.[3],[4],[5] Currently, reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) is the only clinically proven treatment for glaucoma management.[6]
