Latest tonometry devices all have their pluses and minusesYvonne Buys, MD, says ophthalmologists can choose from a range of the latest devices for measuring IOP, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. While new technology continues to emerge, Dr. Buys provides an overview of tonometer technology.
Charting new directions in glaucoma treatmentBen Gaddie, OD, FAAO, Optometry Times Editorial Advisory Board member, noted several specific areas that were advancing to give ODs better data and better control over patient health outcomes, including: • Corneal mechanics • 24-hour IOP monitoring • New glaucoma drugs and drug delivery systems • Advancements in OCT imaging
Fast forward 10 years: How will we treat myopia?
Fast forward 10 years: How will we treat myopia?Liverpool, UK—The British Contact Lens Association meeting features several panel discussion on a theme. Topics included a look into the future for managing myopia and contact lens discomfort. In addition, improve the success of your multifocal contact lens fits with expert suggestions.
Examining relationship between IOP, sleep patterns using contact lens sensorIOP patterns derived from measurements obtained with a non-invasive contact lens sensor (CLS; Triggerfish, Sensimed AG) correlate well with polysomnographic recordings of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, according to research presented by Kaweh Mansouri, MD, and Tarek Shaarawy, 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.
Self-tonometry, new monitoring systems provide wealth of dataThe availability of technologies for ambulatory IOP measurement will usher in a new era in glaucoma patient management. L. Jay Katz, MD, said the technologies will provide better understanding of IOP and patient adherence to topical medications and to make more timely adjustments in therapy while reducing the number of office visits.
