    New technologies transform IOP monitoring, digital health

     

    Swiss Microtechnology

    Goldberg tonometry was invented in Switzerland and Swiss Microtechnology has developed what the company hopes will be the successor to Goldberg, the Pascal dynamic contour tonometer.                    

    Pascal tonometry is far more accurate than Goldberg measurement, said Markus Dakus, product manager. It is mounted on a slit lamp and reads over 10 to 20 seconds, which can be difficult for the patient.

    Newer technology is transforming the same dynamic contour tonometry into a contact lens device. A wired version, developed in 2009, could record up to two hours of continuous data. A wireless model is expected to enter testing this year.

    “We hope to launch the product in 2016,” Dakus said, “We expect to sell about 25,000 units per year. This is the only technology that has been shown to measure 24-hour IOP accurately.”
