More than 75 million people worldwide suffer from glaucoma–the leading cause of irreversible blindness. The majority of these patients lack a proper and consistent medication routine, a concept referred to as poor medication adherence. The team is developing a smart device to track patients’ eye drop medication adherence. Our smart eye drop bottle incorporates multiple on-board sensors paired with an algorithm to actively monitor timing of medication administration. The data is collected via an integrated patient-physician smartphone application. Accurate tracking of medication adherence will improve physician treatment decisions and patient quality of life.
Our groundbreaking technology is a step closer to solving poor medication adherence seen among glaucoma patients by making the eye drop administration tracking seamless.
Our algorithm can predict administration of medicated eye drops with 80% accuracy.
