SENSIMED Triggerfish® Sensor  Smart Contact Lens

The SENSIMED Triggerfish® Sensor is a soft disposable silicone contact lens embedding a micro-sensor that captures spontaneous circumferential changes at the corneoscleral area.

The adhesive SENSIMED Triggerfish® Antenna, which is placed around the eye, receives wirelessly the information from the contact lens.

The data is transmitted through a thin flexible cable from the Antenna to the portable recorder.

The portable recorder, worn by the patient, stores the acquired data during the monitoring session. At the end of the recording period, the data is transferred via Bluetooth from the recorder to the software previously installed on the practitioner’s computer.With its revolutionary technology, the SENSIMED Triggerfish® is a unique system providing further information on the continuous and natural changes of the eye over 24 hours.
