Passive Intraocular Pressure Sensor and Patient-worn Monitoring Recorder
Johns Hopkins has developed a method for passively measuring intraocular pressure of patients at risk for developing glaucoma. APL's technology includes an in vivo sensor and an instrument external to the patient. The in vivo sensor in the intraocular pressure monitor includes a capacitive pressure sensor and an inductive component. The external instrument remotely energizes the sensor, thereby permitting the instrument to directly and continuously monitor intraocular pressure.
