We read with great interest the study by Mansouri et al titled “Continuous 24-Hour Monitoring of Intraocular Pressure Patterns With a Contact Lens Sensor: Safety, Tolerability, and Reproducibility in Patients With Glaucoma.”1
The authors describe their results about safety and tolerability of the contact lens sensor (CLS) Triggerfish (Sensimed AG) in 40 eyes of 40 patients either with glaucoma or suspected of having glaucoma. Safety and tolerability were good. We, too, could find the same satisfying results in our patients (so far 30 eyes, one of us [C.F.] 3 times).2
