Views: 435

Scientists at the University of Arizona in the US have developed an instrument for detecting glaucoma, a disease caused by increased fluid pressure inside the eye.  The project was funded by The National Science Foundation. The device is designed for self testing, and requires an individual has to rub a probe over the eyelid. This device, which can also measure drainage of intraocular fluid, uses a system of micro-force sensors and specially designed microchips, detects the stiffness of the eyelid and calculates the intraocular pressure.
