Glaucoma is an eye disease that can lead to blindness due to abnormally high pressure that damages the optic nerve. Testing of fluid pressure in the eye requires anaesthesia for the patient. iHealthtech Asst Prof Benjamin C.K. Tee and his #research team have successfully developed a low-cost eye pressure testing device that combines AI and electronic skin technology called Hopes. The device can test eye pressure painlessly and conveniently at home. This invention has won the James Dyson Award 2021 in Singapore. Congratulations to Dr Tee and his PhD students Yu Kelu, Li Si, and David Lee for their excellent achievement!
