A quest to prevent post-surgery blindness: Fairfield nurse has devised ways to measure and relieve eye pressure during operations

Bonnie Molloy, a clinical faculty member at Fairfield University’s School of Nursing, has spent five years researching the phenomenon. When a patient is placed head-down in what’s known as the steep Trendelenburg position, Molloy said, it can cause the patient’s intraocular pressure – caused by fluid in the eye – to increase to dangerous levels. “It increases pressure on the back of the optic nerve and can cause permanent blindness,” said Molloy, who is also the chief certified registered nurse anesthetist in the Bridgeport Anesthesia Associates practice at Bridgeport Hospital.
