All of the tables that relate the change in volume to the IOP assume a normal ocular rigidity, and this introduces a substantial error for some measurements. , myopia,117 strong miotic therapy,117 retinal detachment surgery,118,119 or compressible gas120) give falsely low Schiøtz IOP readings.

321 Diabetic individuals have higher IOPs than the general population. The reason for this association is unclear. 330 Foods and drugs A variety of foods and drugs can alter IOP transiently (Table 4‑4). 341,342 The effect of general anesthesia is compounded by the fact that IOP is elevated during the excitatory phase and becomes progressively lower as the anesthesia lasts longer and phases of anesthesia become deeper. Therefore, timing of measurement following induction of general anesthesia is important.

Some researchers have found that stimulation of specific diencephalic areas in experimental animals alters IOP, whereas other researchers303,304 believed these effects were non-specific in nature. The third ventricle is close to the hypothalamus and other diencephalic centers. 309–313 The authors have seen one young man who pressed and rubbed his fists against his eyes continually unless he was heavily medicated or physically restrained.
