Design and Build an Intraocular Pressure Controllable Gadget
Projects from courses/Final Year Project
Supervisor: Dr. Match W.L. Ko (Department of Mechanical Engineering)
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of irreversible blindness and its diagnosis is often delayed due to its painless symptoms and slow development of loss of eyesight. A gadget is needed to be built to increase intraocular pressure such that the deformation of optic nerve can be studied to facilitate research in the diagnosis of Glaucoma. A goggles-like device was built using TPU by 3D-printing. It exerts force on the eye periphery hence causing pressure build up. It was then tested and it showed successful results during clinical testing.
