PLEASE READ THIS COOKIE POLICY CAREFULLY.

We use cookies to help improve your experience of http://www.eyecbetter.com. This cookie policy is part of EyeCBetter’s privacy policy, and covers the use of cookies between your device and our site.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit, typically containing information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (eg. logging in), to track site usage (eg. analytics), to store your user settings (eg. timezone, notification preferences), and to personalize your content (eg. advertising, language).

Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies”, and typically only track your activity on that particular site. Cookies set by other sites and companies (ie. third parties) are called “third-party cookies”, and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. Targeting / advertising cookies set by third-parties may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. We do not use this type of cookie on our site.

The current gold-standard for measuring IOP uses a device called the Goldmann Applanation Tonometer (GAT).  This device is found in most, if not all, medical eye care clinical settings and is not available for home-use.  The limitations of the device are cost, size, and its dependence on an experienced operator to capture a pressure measurement.  There is a semi-portable version of the device, but this has similar limitations in that it also requires training for safe use and cannot be self-administered.

In view of the foregoing drawbacks of existing systems and methods, there is a need for a device that allows for accurate home IOP measurement. ECB’s device and integrated network will encompass data collection, data storage, and communication with healthcare providers.
