New hope for glaucoma patients with solar-powered eye sensor

Glaucoma occurs owing to damage caused to the optic nerves that ultimately causes vision loss.

Patients with glaucoma have troubles with vision and many of them have lost hope.

But how solar energy and nanotechnology being so prevalent today, the hope is alive.

Scientists have discovered the solar-powered eye sensor, which could be a reinitiate for patient eye-sight.

These little devices measure the size of a cubic millimeter and are capable of taking in measurements every 15 minutes while uploading the readings daily via 400MHz and 900MHz frequencies.

The eye sensor uses an antenna of 47 microwatts and transmits signals with the pulse of the capacitor.

With a single charge before this device works 28 days.
