Abstract

In this paper, we report on a microfluidic test-bed for in-vitro simulation of flow characteristics of valved-glaucoma drainage devices. A nanopore membrane is used to mimic the fibrous tissue encapsulation of the sub-conjunctival plate following surgery. Pressure measurements with and without the valve clearly demonstrated the persisting effect of the microvalve in regulating the intraocular pressure subsequent to the fibrous capsule formation.
