Intraocular Pressure Sensors for Glaucoma Therapy

We have been developing implantable intraocular pressure sensor devices for detecting excessive intraocular pressure above a predetermined threshold pressure to assist Glaucoma therapy. These devices include MEMS pressure switches that are sized and configured to be placed in an eye, wherein said pressure switch is activated when the intraocular pressure is higher than the predetermined threshold pressure. The intraocular pressure sensor devices are optically powered and transmit data wirelessly using optical communication.
