Ophthalmic Tonographs, Ambulatory

Definition : Electronic recorders designed for continuous storage of data that show changes in intraocular pressure (IOP). These recorders typically consist of a wearable electronic recorder that receives signals from an electro-mechanical sensor that is embedded in a disposable contact lens or implanted in the eye. These signals provide information on IOP changes. The sensor incorporates a wireless transmitter that delivers the signals, usually during a 24-hour time period (or less) that includes sleep time. These recorders typically consist of a wearable electronic recorder that receives signals providing information on IOP changes from an electro-mechanical sensor that is embedded in a disposable contact lens or implanted in the eye; the sensor incorporates a wireless transmitter that delivers the signals usually during a time period of 24 hours or less including sleep time. The data stored in the recorder is then downloaded to a computer (e.g., personal computer) using a dedicated software that permits the analysis of the recorded data by an ophthalmologist. IOP recorders are mainly used to facilitate the diagnosis and evaluation of glaucoma.
