Home Self-tonometry Trials compared with Clinic Tonometry in Patients with Glaucoma [Game Changer!]

MyEYES strives to continually keep our patients updated as to the latest information regarding Glaucoma. This article could be a potential game changer for the Eye Industry especially the Glaucoma Specialists in the way that they view their patients IOP from day-to-day fluctuations, and the importance of being able to capture that vital data 24/7. Thus influencing their treatment protocols and the patients treatment paths to helping preserve as much of their site as possible. – C S Epperson, MyEYES.

Conclusion from the article:

Self-tonometry provides IOP data that supplements in-clinic tonometry and would not be
detectable over daytime in-clinic diurnal curves. A subset of patients in whom home tonometry was ordered by
their glaucoma clinician because of suspicion of occult IOP elevation demonstrated reproducible IOP elevation
outside of the clinic setting. Such patients tended to be younger and male and not to have undergone previous
filtering surgery. Ophthalmology Glaucoma 2021;4:569-580 ª 2021 by the American Academy of Ophthalmology

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 over the span of a week or two at several 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. The result: the most effective way to proactively slow the damaging and blinding progression of this horrible disease.
