  Purpose

The purpose of the study is to evaluate changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) between sitting and supine body positions and correlate the values obtained with conventional tonometers to the output provided by the investigational device.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Difference in study device signal and GAT IOP between the sitting and supine positions during the sitting-supine sequence [ Time Frame: 45 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Difference in Triggerfish® signal and GAT IOP between the sitting and supine positions upon returning to sitting position from supine [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • IOP measurements with tonopen and pneuma-tonometer in sitting position, and tonopen, pneuma-tonometer and Perkins in supine position [ Time Frame: 2 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Monitoring with study device obtained before Day 2 [ Time Frame: 20 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Intervention Details:
    Device: SENSIMED Triggerfish®
    Soft contact lens-based device for the continuous monitoring of IOP fluctuations
Detailed Description:

20 subjects will be enrolled in the investigation. Eligible subjects will receive one session of 22-hour continuous IOP monitoring with SENSIMED Triggerfish® in ambulatory mode, with body position transitions carried out in-hospital. SENSIMED Triggerfish® will be installed randomly on right or left eyes and the IOP recording will be initiated as soon as the adaptation of the device on the subject's eye is satisfying. Subjects will then go home. The next morning, subjects will return to the hospital and during SENSIMED Triggerfish® monitoring on one eye, IOP measurements will be taken in the fellow eye in sitting position using Goldmann, tonopen and pneuma-tonometers. Then subjects will lie down on a flat bed. After 15 ± 5 minutes and again after 45 ± 5 minutes IOP will be measured in supine position, using Goldmann, tonopen, pneuma-tonometer and Perkins tonometers. Then subjects will sit up again. After 30 ± 5 minutes IOP will be measured with the Goldmann tonometer.
