Glaucoma patients can rent a home-monitoring device to measure intraocular pressure at home.
Daily intraocular pressure (IOP or eye pressure) monitoring is essential for patients with glaucoma. In many cases, elevated IOPs may not be detected during regular follow-up appointments. Understanding these pressure peaks can help control the disease and optimise the treatment regimen of the patient.
The iCare HOME tonometer enables glaucoma patients to measure their IOP at home, and the measurements are stored in a cloud database accessible to both the doctor and the patient. The device allows measurements to be taken at different times of the day for several days, thereby revealing IOP peaks that might not have been apparent at the clinic. The daily IOP information from the home measurements can help determine if a medication change or surgery is needed sooner rather than later.
The iCare HOME tonometer is light and easy to use. No anaesthesia or other preparations are needed for measuring IOP. Patients can rent the home monitoring device from SNEC, and they will be provided with instruction on how to use the device correctly.
