I-SIGHT: Interactive Study to Increase Glaucoma adHerence to TreatmentI-SIGHT logo

The I-SIGHT study aimed to develop, implement, and evaluate an innovative e-health communication intervention to improve glaucoma treatment compliance among 250 patients recruited from two eye clinics in metropolitan Atlanta. The intervention was telephone-based and utilized interactive voice recognition technology. Further, it was individually-tailored to participants' compliance knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; health literacy; race and culture; and prescribed medication regimen. This research has the potential to have a significant impact on public health by testing a generalizable and affordable health promotion strategy to increase treatment compliance among diverse populations.
