IOP monitoring

Glaucoma monitoring implant receives CE markAn implantable glaucoma sensor has received CE mark approval for marketing in the European Union. The sensor (Eyemate, Implandata Ophthalmic Products) can provide frequent IOP readings, informing patients and their physicians about how the pressure changes by time of day and from one day to another.
Continuous IOP monitoring: Tools for addressing an unmet need
Continuous IOP monitoring: Tools for addressing an unmet needDevices for continuous IOP monitoring will address the need to better understand IOP levels and patterns in patients with glaucoma.
New technology helps IOP measurementNot long ago, a colleague asked me if I performed Goldmann tonometry on all of my glaucoma patients. Without hesitation I said, “No.” When asked why not, I simply answered that not all of my patients are physically able to have the test performed on them.
Not knowing IOPs can make you a better clinicianWith that in mind, there are several aspects of my own EHR software that I really appreciate over paper charts. Besides the fact that I can actually read what I wrote (or typed), one thing that I particularly enjoy is the fact that I am able to consistently look at a new patient’s optic nerves without knowing his or her intraocular pressure (IOP) values beforehand.
Contact lens sensor may solve IOP accuracy dilemmasA contact lens sensor may aid in 24-hour IOP monitoring and help measure the true diurnal and nocturnal IOP.
Postop considerations for pseudoexfoliation after cataract surgery
Postop considerations for pseudoexfoliation after cataract surgeryPostoperative patients with PXF pose both short- and long-term concerns due to the underlying pathological changes that occur from the fibrillar deposition with some complications arising years after the surgery.
Field defect, high IOP might not signal glaucomaGlaucoma is a term that describes a family of progressive optic neuropathies. All of the glaucomas share characteristic and progressive cupping of the optic nerve head, and this cupping is most easily viewed by means of direct stereoscopic evaluation through a dilated pupil.
Self-tonometry, new monitoring systems provide wealth of dataTechnologies will provide better understanding of IOP and patient adherence to topical medications and allow timely adjustments in therapy while reducing the number of office visits.
Decade ahead to bring momentous advances in glaucoma careThe next decade will be a period of remarkable research discoveries for glaucoma and their translation into enhanced patient care, according to Robert N. Weinreb, MD.
24-hour monitoring to revolutionize glaucoma careThe advent of 24-hour IOP monitoring will transform the care of patients with glaucoma and usher in a new era of personalizing IOP. 24-hour IOP monitoring set to revolutionize glaucoma research and clinical care.
