This is the home page of the Non-contact Screening for Primary Angle-Closure Galucome Project. You can find the The Mission, the update status of The Device and the Time Schedule of the project .


Primary angle-closure glaucoma, a common cause of bilateral blindness worldwide, is more frequent in subjects with “small” eyes. Prevention passes through timely detection of the disease. Standard technique is Gonioscopy but is invasive and subjective.

The aim of the proposed project is to develop an objective, non invasive, low-cost, portable instrument for detecting patients at high risk for angle-closure glaucoma.

  • Phase 1: Development of an innovative, non-invasive instrument able to quantify, without eye contact, the width of the irido-corneal angle.
  • Phase 2: Cross-sectional, case-control, comparative evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy and agreement
