A wireless ocular telemetry sensor appears to be well-tolerated in black patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), according to a prospective, observational cohort study involving 20 individuals.
Participants—all of whom were black—reported their ocular discomfort and were examined at baseline. Participants were then fitted with the Sensimed Triggerfish contact lens sensor and kept a record of their activities for 24 hours before returning for a follow-up exam. Exams were repeated after the lens was removed. Among the results:
