Background Patients with glaucoma on topical glaucoma medication are often affected by dry eye symptoms and thus likely to rub or squeeze their eyelids. Here, we telemetrically measure peak intraocular pressure (IOP) during eyelid manoeuvres and eyelid rubbing. Methods Eleven patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) previously implanted wi...

Purpose: To explore the effect of gaze direction and eyelid closure on intraocular pressure (IOP). Methods: Eleven patients with primary open-angle glaucoma previously implanted with a telemetric IOP sensor were instructed to view eight equally-spaced fixation targets each at three eccentricities (10°, 20°, and 25°). Nine patients also performed...

Background: Eyemate® is a system for the continual monitoring of intraocular pressure (IOP), composed of an intraocular sensor, and a hand-held reader device. As the eyemate®-IO sensor communicates with the hand-held reader telemetrically, some patients might fear that the electronic devices that they use on a daily basis might somehow interfere w...
Article
Aims (1) To test the feasibility of simultaneous steady-state pattern electroretinogram (ssPERG) and intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements with an implanted IOP sensor. (2) To explore the scope of this approach for detecting PERG changes during IOP manipulation in a model of lateral decubitus positioning (LDP; lateral position). Methods 15 healt...

Purpose To test the feasibility of simultaneous steady-state pattern electroretinogram (PERG) and intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements with an IOP sensor and to test a model for IOP manipulation during lateral decubitus positioning (LDP) and its impact on the PERG. Design A prospective, observational study. Methods 15 healthy controls and 15 t...

Purpose: Eyemate is a system for the continual monitoring of intraocular pressure (IOP), comprised of an intraocular sensor, and a hand-held reader device. The eyemate-IO sensor is surgically implanted in the eye during cataract surgery. Once implanted, the sensor communicates telemetrically with the hand-held device to activate and record IOP meas...
Article
HIV protease inhibitors (PIs) are antiretroviral agents, which have been found to also affect several cellular processes, such as inflammation and cell progression. In studies on non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs, the addition of a nitric oxide (NO) moiety has been shown to both reduce their toxicity and enhance their pharmacological efficacy....

Project
To assess the influence of various physiological parameters like blood pressure, physical activity, breathing, body position, gaze direction, etc. on intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). IOP is measured using a sulcus-fixed implantable intraocular pressure sensor, that has previously been implanted (up to five years ago) in glaucoma patients during independently scheduled cataract surgery.

EGRET-plus is the training environment for 15 highly talented Early Stage Researchers. The individual and collaborative outputs of their work contribute to the following aims: a) acquiring new, quantitative knowledge on glaucoma and the ageing visual system; and b) applying this new knowledge to boost innovation in glaucoma care in both the public and private sectors.
