Remote Video-to-Video Eye Telemonitoring Use Case for Glaucoma Patients

Abstract : Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness globally and the second most common cause of avoidable visual impairment. It also holds a record in noncompliance to therapy from the patients in up to 50% of the subjects treated with anti-glaucoma eye drops. LiveCity e-Health is a European research program, which aims to provide better treatment and follow up of glaucoma patients at their home, through telemonitoring with high definition video-to-video (v2v) communication from the University Hospital. Secondly, it aims to reduce the cost of health and improve the city environment by decreasing the number of visits to the Hospital. For this purpose, a software application has been developed; the latter is easy to use for elderly people at home, and capable of keeping the medical history and digital records of every patient in the Glaucoma Department. In addition, a specific web camera with snapshot ability of high quality photo of the eye has utilised. Two patients have been initially enrolled in the study and the preliminary results are so presented.
