About Glaucoma – the leading cause of irreversible, debilitating vision loss worldwide
80 million people with the chronic eye disease glaucoma suffer the risk of permanently losing vision, eventually going blind. Current practice (typically 4 office visits/year) is insufficient to prevent vision loss for many patients. Glaucoma status between visits is unknown. Though doctors have many treatment options, delayed detection of disease progression delays therapy adjustment and results in further loss of eyesight.
About the EYEMATE™ System
EYEMATE is the world’s only CE-marked, clinically-validated system for remote glaucoma care. Implandata’s patented biosensors and cloud-based, AI-system alert patients and their eye doctor in real-time of uncontrolled glaucoma. When the disease progresses, EYEMATE enables the therapy to be adjusted immediately – before the patient loses further vision
