Intraocular Pressure Telemetry for Managing Glaucoma During the COVID-19 Pandemic December 2020 IOP measurements acquired by the patients during the lockdown period were collected by physicians who were located remotely. A questionnaire was sent to 10 participating study centers to evaluate the clinical impact of remote monitoring of IOP via the IOP sensor system.
The results show the feasibility of patient acquired measurement of IOP in conjunction with remote IOP monitoring by physicians as feasible with an implantable sensor. The data obtained had an impact on clinical decision-making, including adjustment of ocular hypotensive therapy and avoiding unnecessary office visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Influence of electromagnetic radiation emitted by daily-use electronic devices on the Eyemate® system in-vitro: a feasibility study September 2020 Background: Eyemate® is a system for the continual monitoring of intraocular pressure (IOP), composed of an intraocular sensor, and a hand-held reader device. As the eyemate®-IO sensor communicates with the hand-held reader telemetrically, some patients might fear that the electronic devices that they use on a daily basis might somehow interfere with this communication, leading to unreliable measurements of IOP….
Use of a novel telemetric sensor to study interactions of intraocular pressure and ganglion-cell function in glaucoma July 2020 Telemetric implantable micro-sensor for measurement of intraocular pressure enables studying interaction of intraocular pressure and ganglion cell function, providing better understanding of intraocular pressure variations and its impact on visual field loss in glaucoma patients.
Short-Term and Long-Term Variability of Intraocular Pressure measured with an Intraocular Telemetry Sensor in Patients with Glaucoma July 2020 Continual IOP monitoring shows that IOP has moderate short-term and high long-term variability in glaucoma patients. These findings demonstrate that single IOP measurements do not characterize day to day variations in IOP. Moreover, they show the importance of continual IOP monitoring in glaucoma patients.
Using sensors to estimate intraocular pressure: a review of intraocular pressure telemetry in clinical practice July 2020 With regards to the intraocular Eyemate monitor, its implantable nature reserves it for patients in more advanced stages of the disease.

Influence of electromagnetic radiation emitted by daily-use electronic devices on the Eyemate® System. November 2019 Conclusion: Measurements made by the eyemate® system showed no apparent signal drift or evidence of being influenced by external electromagnetic radiation produced by the devices that we tested. Patients who already have the eyemate®-IO sensor implanted, and those who are considering to have one, should be informed that the electromagnetic radiation emitted by their daily-use electronic devices does not interfere with IOP measurements made by the eyemate® system.
