Three approaches for continuous IOP monitoring are being explored to find an ideal device that would accurately measure 24-hour IOP without IOP measurement noise, contact lens intolerance or other issues, Arthur J. Sit, SM, MD, said.

“We may just be getting to the point now with miniaturization, particularly driven by the computer industry, where we could potentially have clinically suitable devices,” Dr. Sit said at [a recent professional meeting].

"This may be the beginning of the end of the GAT as the gold standard for measuring IOP." -- Etsuo Chihara, MD, PhD

This quote comes from the author of the following paper, published in Survey of Ophthalmology (Surv Ophthalmol. 2008 May-Jun;53(3):203-18): Assessment of true intraocular pressure: the gap between theory and practical data

Pressure Sensors in the Eye

 Much of my focus has been on high-frequency monitoring of intraocular pressure with currently available technology. The current standard in ophthalmology practice seems to be monitoring intraocular pressure at a frequency of once every three to twelve months, depending on specific patient factors. In contrast, my research efforts look at what is possible when intraocular pressure is monitored as frequently as hundreds of times per day for many consecutive days.

Relationship Between Fear and Elevated Intraocular Pressure

Elevated intraocular pressure can be classified as a condition characterized by resistance and contraction. The intraocular fluid cannot flow from the eye freely because there is resistance in one or both of the main drainage areas. This resistance creates elevated pressure inside the eye.
