EYEMATE system cleared in Europe

Patients with certain eye conditions, particularly glaucoma, need regular testing of their IOP, which involves an in-office procedure during which a clinician uses a tonometer to take readings. The IOP can vary significantly throughout the day, and similar to blood pressure, events far outside the normal range can be frequently missed. Implandata just won European approval to introduce its EYEMATE system for continuous monitoring of intraocular pressure, even when the patient is comfortably at home.

The product consists of a sensor that is implanted into the eye as part of a surgery for cataracts, glaucoma, or corneal problems, and a handheld unit that can wirelessly power the implant and download its readings.

The handheld controller can immediately share the IOP gathered from the sensor with one’s doctor, avoiding any trips to the office to simply take a measurement of the IOP. Physicians can assign their patients a testing regimen, which can help identify events that are otherwise difficult to spot, and therefore aid in tuning medication prescriptions.
