Abstract:In this paper we present a new sensor for the measurement of intraocular pressure. We have applied the indentation principle, in which the eye is indented by exerting a force on it, while the size of the indented area is monitored. To measure the force we have used a commercial force sensor. The sensor to measure the indentation of the eye has been developed in our laboratories. We have performed measurements using an experimental set-up; these show that an accuracy of 90% will be possible if the sensor is designed in the proper way.
