We need your help!

trex logoAAO Public Health Section and Fellows Doing Research Special Interest Group are requesting additional participants to assist in an observational clinical research project entitled Timed Rebound Experiment (T‐REX), which they are conducting during AAO in the exhibit hall.  The aim is to obtain time to successful self‐measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP) utilizing rebound tonometry with the Icare HOME tonometer. The study will take place in the Exhibit Hall at the Academy 2018 meeting in San Antonio, TX, November 7‐9. Volunteers will complete in‐person Icare HOME Tonometer Certification the Wednesday morning of Academy, and then help carry out the experiment by working a 2‐hour shift in the Exhibit Hall.

If you (or someone you know) would like to participate in this year’s experiment, please email Dr. Nadine Furtado at nfurtado@uwaterloo.ca by October 1, 2018.   Further details can be downloaded here.
