The determination of pressure in the ophthalmic artery by use of an instrument that produces pressure on the eyeball until pulsations in the ophthalmic artery are seen through the ophthalmoscope, indicating the diastolic pressure or the period of the least pressure in the arterial vascular system.

As the pressure is increased, the vessel collapses and the systolic pressure (maximum blood pressure) is obtained.
