Question (04/01/2012):

Title: Instrument to check eye pressure at home.

Thank you so much for answering my query on Glaucoma.

I request to kindly inform me if any instrument to check eye pressure is available for domestic use at home, so that I can check my eye pressure at home daily to monitor the same.

What is that instrument called and availability stores details please?

Regards,

Nandagopal

Answer:

Dear Nandagopal,

Peristat is a virtual perimetry system that allows self-testing on any standard computer monitor via Internet connection.

Peristat is a reliable self-test perimetry system that demonstrates high clinical utility for the detection of visual-field defects from glaucoma.

Peristat could be a valuable public health tool for cost-effective screening of glaucoma.
