Glaucoma

Glaucoma

Known as the “Silent-Thief” of sight, glaucoma is associated with high eye pressure that causes damage to the optic nerve. Most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain. Detection and treatment are essential to preserving vision and preventing blindness.

Intraocular Pressure (IOP)

Eye pressure, also called intraocular pressure (IOP), is a measurement of the pressure inside the eye. It is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Early detection and treatment for rising pressure are the keys to preventing vision loss.

Key Glaucoma Statistics

  • 100M+ Affected Globally
  • Surging to 160M+ by 2050
  • 50% Don’t know they have it
  • It has no cure
  • Its effects are irreversible
  • Early detection is key

The Need for a Home Device

Today, a tonometry test is the method eye care professionals use to measure intraocular pressure. This test is like pressing on a balloon or a tire to check for air pressure. Accurately measuring pressure is paramount to detecting and monitoring glaucoma. Also, as eye pressure fluctuates during a 24-hour period, our reliance on periodic measurements for early detection of this blinding disease is suboptimal at best and is a major contributor to why over 50% of people with glaucoma don’t even know they have it. Additionally, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic continues to exacerbate this problem. A reduced willingness to be present in medical clinics is driving demand for telemedicine and alternative methods of monitoring as well as diagnostics that can be administered at home.


To provide the type of early detection and ongoing monitoring you need to save your vision, you need the ability to take frequent IOP measurements at home. To best manage your glaucoma and prevent vision loss, ideally you would have the ability to take daily IOP measurements. Only then can your personal eye pressure fluctuations be tracked, and your true pressure change be detected. 

 

Eye C Better will have a FDA approved eye pressure device that patients can use in the comfort of their home. Our revolutionary device will work together with our patient app to truly transform glaucoma care and ensure a lifetime of vision.
