This is a great slideshow put together for The Glaucoma Foundation by our co-founder and chief medical advisor, Dr. Barbara Wirostko, MD FARVO, adjunct professor at the University of Utah Moran Eye Center.

Abstract from the article:

“…IOP is still the only modifiable risk factor [in glaucoma]. – Wiroskto”

“Because of the sheer importance of the IOP in patients suffering from all stages of Glaucoma, providing this simple and easy to use home monitoring device is our entire focus. We aim to get this device into every single home of someone with glaucoma, giving them and their doctor the power of information and the ability to make informed decision that will ultimately help their vision and lessen this diseases’ effects.” -Chris Epperson, MyEYES LLC.

Our mission is to make it easier to get home tonometers into hands of the people who need it. In this way, IOP data collected at home at various time points during the day and or night can help to direct an individual patients’ doctors to provide the ideal treatment for that patient’s tailored need.
