A novel contact lens-embedded sensor may be capable of producing measurements of IOP and ocular pulse amplitude that are comparable to widely used devices, a study said.

In 12 eyes of 12 sitting subjects, measurements of IOP and ocular pulse amplitude from the contact lens-embedded sensor were similar to handheld and slit lamp-mounted configurations of the dynamic contour tonometer, according to the study.

Although measurements from all devices were greater with supine conditions, the contact lens sensor produced comparatively lower measurements of IOP and ocular pulse amplitude. Read Full Story at OSN Supersite


  1. I just hope people aren’t looking only for the cheapest price for contact lenses which isn’t always a good idea according to http://www.coloredcontacts.com where they state: “When it comes to the health of your eyes, the best buy for affordable or cheap contact lenses is purchasing the best quality brand name product at the most affordable price. For example, the Freshlook contact lens brand is a quality product manufactured here in the United States, a manufacturer that follows strict quality control guidelines, and therefore produces a high quality color contact lens.
    On the other hand, if you purchase the cheapest priced contacts because they were low priced, you may be getting lesser quality, cheap contacts. When looking for inexpensive or cheap contact lenses online, look for known reputable manufacturers. Finding the lowest, rock bottom price usually does not equal the best quality. You could be putting your eyes at risk. When it comes to colored contacts, if you want the best we recommend Ciba’s Freshlook colors and colorblends contact lens.
