IOP taken with contact lens sensor correlates with visual field changes

February 4, 2016

Researchers determined that the use of 24-hour IOP measurements obtained via a contact lens sensor were associated with the rate of visual field progression in patients undergoing treatment for glaucoma.

De Moraes and colleagues evaluated 34 patients between the ages of 40 and 89 years being treated for primary open-angle glaucoma and whose IOP measured 20 mm Hg or less. Patients had at least eight visual field tests performed within at least 2 years of follow-up.
