Data beyond a single measurement: Studies show IOP peaks occur outside of clinical hours
Traditional clinic measurements only offer a snapshot of a patient's IOP, often missing the true peaks and variations that occur outside office hours. Studies have revealed that wide fluctuations of IOP, and elevated IOP, contribute to glaucoma progression. This insight underscores the need for continuous monitoring and understanding of IOP variability to optimize glaucoma care.
The range of IOP variations in glaucoma patients can be three times higher than in normal subjects1. IOP variation in normal eyes is generally between 2-6 mmHg whereas in glaucoma patients, it can reach 10 mmHg or more2. Studies have reported IOP peaks outside of office hours in 62%, 66%, and 52% of glaucoma patients2,4,5
Revolutionizing glaucoma care with iCare HOME2 — a modern approach to 24-Hour IOP monitoring
The iCare HOME2 tonometer paints a true picture of the patient's IOP profile. This innovative home tonometry device empowers patients to make IOP measurements during normal daily activities, offering healthcare providers a comprehensive perspective on IOP fluctuations and peaks, accessible from any location.
