Informed consent is taken and all subjects underwent visual activity measurement, slit lamp examination, Goldmann applanation tonometry, indentation gonioscopy and stereo biomicroscopic examination of the optic disc using a 78 D lens.
Both lenses have different advantages, with the Goldmann lens giving more stability and the Zeiss lens allowing a 360[degrees] view and the ability to perform indentation gonioscopy.
