The [Equinox] concept challenges conventional wisdom about the etiology of glaucoma and joins a growing body of evidence pointing to pressure-related factors beyond IOP.
Dr. Berdahl’s full presentation is available on ascrs.org
“That was the impetus for an idea which led to an understanding that glaucoma is not a disease just about pressure in the eye. It’s a disease about a pressure balance between the IOP (eye) pressure and the CSF (brain) pressure.”
In a special session here at SECO, John Berdahl, MD, theorized that glaucoma results when the difference between the cerebrospinal fluid and intraocular pressures is too great.
Dr. Berdahl began to think of glaucoma not as a disease confined solely to the ocular system, but as a disease of pressure differences throughout the body.
Vision for Mars winner and SMARTCAP grant recipient Equinox, LLC talks building capacity and gaining visibility by way of SMARTCAP. Watch as they demo their groundbreaking device that seeks to equalize eye pressure in glaucoma patients on Earth as well as in astronauts on long duration space flight.
Dr. Berdahl was featured in The Ophthalmologist’s list of the top 40 ophthalmologists under 40, “young, up-and-coming individuals set to rise to the top of their field.”
Equinox, LLC will develop Balance Goggles™, a simple and comfortable pair of eye wear that will help regulate the pressure inside the eye.
