  • implant
  • Researchers at the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Microsysems and Modular Solid State Technologies in Germany are now working on an implant that may be able to maintain the intraocular pressure within predefined limits, helping patients to continue seeing well for years longer. (medgadget.com)
  • The current device can be implanted along with prosthetic intraocular lenses, but the researchers are looking into being able to implant the device with on its own. (medgadget.com)
  • study
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) utilizing an experimental lotion containing 0.005% Latanoprost that is applied to the outside of one eyelid. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • treatment
  • Not only is this new treatment approach gentler on the patient,it also offers added advantages: eye pressure can be set at a considerably more precise level than with pharmaceutical-based therapies or surgical intervention. (medgadget.com)
  • lower
  • The total size of the eye ball is quite larger than that of the cornea and because of the aqueous humour isn't filled within the eyeball and it's filled only around the cornea, the pressure on the retina and the optic nerve is quite lower than intraocular pressure which is messured on the cornea.

  • device
  • Mass Device has interviewed the CEO of SENSIMED AG , a company out of Lausanne, Switzerland that has developed a contact lens capable of continuously measuring intraocular pressure. (medgadget.com)
  • values
  • Therefore, it would be of interest to show an x - y scatter plot of the values of C at the two pressure levels plotted against each other for each eye in both groups. (arvojournals.org)
