Study monitors, Intraocular Pressure by using an Intraocular
Intraocular pressure (IOP) is the only modifiable risk factor for glaucoma, demonstrating visual field preservation with IOP reduction. Over recent years, the use of remote sensors has formed an increasingly important component of the management of chronic diseases

This report describes the first case of glaucoma surgery in a patient who had previously received an eyemate-IO implant. The eyemate-IO (Implandata Ophthalmic Products) is an implant for intraocular pressure (IOP) monitoring placed in the ciliary sulcus during cataract surgery.

Results:
--Remote IOP monitoring enabled the clinician to identify sustained high IOP readings and the need for glaucoma surgery.
--Post-operatively, response to treatment could be monitored to ensure sufficient long-term IOP control.

This patient's eyemate-IO, which was implanted during cataract surgery, provided crucial remote continuous IOP data that guided timely glaucoma surgical procedures for poorly controlled IOP.
