24h Continuous Intraocular Pressure (IOP) Monitoring vs Goldmann Applanation Tonometry
A study in which intraocular pressure (IOP) will be monitored over 24 hours using the SENSIMED Triggerfish® device and Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) in primary open angle glaucoma patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the comparability of diurnal IOP patterns emerging from SENSIMED Triggerfish and GAT.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Comparison of 24-hour Continuous IOP Monitoring With a Contact Lens-based Sensor to Goldmann Applanation Tonometry|
- SENSIMED Triggerfish output values [ Time Frame: During 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Patients will undergo one session of 24-hour SENSIMED Triggerfish continuous intraocular pressure monitoring in one eye.
- Goldmann applanation tonometry values [ Time Frame: During 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Goldmann applanation IOP readings will be done in the other eye at regular intervals during 24-hour SENSIMED Triggerfish IOP monitoring and in both eyes during another 24-hour session.
