Maklakov’s method for measurement of the intraocular pressure (IOP) is based on approach, in which an eyeball is modeled as a thin-walled spherical liquid-filled shell. Measuring the IOP one estimates the diameter of the circular contact area of the cornea and the tonometer. In the clinic special tables are used to estimate the IOP relating to the measured diameter. However nowadays the calculating of such tables is based on the empirical values of the IOP. In the present paper the mathematical simulation of the measuring of the intraocular pressure by Maklakov method is considered.
