Pressure Reducers, Intraocular

Definition : Devices designed to reduce the internal pressure of eye fluid by applying external, controlled mechanical compression with an inflatable (i.e., pneumatic) balloon. These devices typically consist of a headband with inflatable bellows, an air pump, a pressure gauge (i.e., manometer), and tubing. Pneumatic balloon intraocular pressure reducers are typically used before ophthalmic surgery for temporary reduction of internal ocular pressure achieving a condition known as soft surgical eye, which is characterized by a reduction of vitreous pressure and helps prevent hemorrhages, reducing risk in and facilitating ophthalmic surgical procedures.
