Post Eye Pressure/Glaucoma Test

When I saw my opthalmologist yesterday, my eye pressure was 18 in both eyes... the same as it has always been. When I saw an eye specialist today, it was 13 in one eye and 16 in the other. Both doctors performed the same test. I know my results are fine, but why the discrepency? (18 vs. 13/16)

Just curious, thanks!

It fluctuates throughout the day/night....morning, afternoon, evening, night, sitting, standing, lying down, lifting things...etc....
