Multifunctional black-silicon (b-Si) integrated on the surface of an implantable intraocular pressure sensor significantly improves sensor performance and reliability in six-month in vivo studies. The antireflective properties of b-Si triples the signal-to-noise ratio and increases the optical readout distance to a clinically viable 12 cm. Tissue growth and inflammation response on the sensor is suppressed demonstrating desirable anti-biofouling properties.
