Title: Home Monitoring in Glaucoma Author(s): Toby Boote and Andrew J. Tatham Publisher: Review Glaucoma by European Ophthalmic Review Type: Trade Journal - Peer Reviewed Release Date: January 7, 2019 Summary:
A wide range of relatively cheap, wearable digital devices are now available that enable self-monitoring of parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure, physical activity and sleep patterns. Although these devices are often marketed at healthy people, new technologies that permit home monitoring may also have the potential to improve the detection and management of chronic diseases including glaucoma. If patients were able to measure their intraocular pressure or perform perimetry at home, many more measurements could be obtained, with the potential to improve our ability to differentiate true change from test–retest variability. Home monitoring may also improve our ability to determine efficacy of treatment and enhance patient engagement.
