Do you have to do the Air Puff? What’s it for?

The air puff test, or non contact tonometry, is a quick and painless way to determine the pressure of the fluid inside your eye.  A modern non contact tonometer will give a very small, almost imperceptible puff. Determining the pressure inside your eye is an important indicator of eye health and an important factor in determining if you have glaucoma.
