Rule Defying DIATON Tonometer – IOP Through Eyelid and Sclera – Featured at International Vision Expo West VEW, Las Vegas

25,000 visitors at International Vision Expo West, #VEW have an opportunity to see and try first hand the worlds only through the eyelid and trans-scleral tonometer which allows to obtain IOP independent of the corneal biometrics.  Tonometer DIATON is a replaceble solution for children and adults, even patients wearing contact lenses can get accurately screened.  Diaton tonometer pen is handheld, non-contact (no contact with cornea), latex-free (no tips or covers), painless tonometer.

Please visit 2 exhibits MS11051 & MS5066 for personalized demo and training

Rule defying Non-Corneal Diaton tonometry opens new doors to optometrists and other eye care professionals to evaluate intraocular pressure (IOP) for glaucoma THROUGH THE EYELID. Diaton tonometer is effective in obtaining IOP measurements for many challenging patient populations and children.

Diaton Tonometer provides quick, painless and reliable measurements and makes it possible to diagnose glaucoma in its early stages, allowing users to devise an appropriate care and treatment plan. Diaton is effective in obtaining IOP measurements for many challenging patient populations, including: those with chronic conjunctivitis, erosions, edema and corneal dimness; people who have undergone corneal surgeries; and immobilized patients and children. Also, patients do not need to remove their contact lenses.

Presenting Diaton tonometer at International Vision Expo West VEW at Sands Casino and Resort, Las Vegas is a great opportunity to showcase unique non-corneal and non-contact capabilities of this new tonometry technology to thousands of optometrists and other eye care professionals.

Diaton Tonometer will be showcased in 2 exhibits MS11051 & MS5066 VISION SYSTEMS & OPTIMETRICS INC

Unlike Goldmann / Contact tonometry which is based on the Imbert–Fick law and is effected by CCT and other corneal parameters and corneal diseases, where small area of the membrane is flattened to measure pressure of the internal fluid.  Evidence shows that variations in CCT may greatly influence Goldmann tonometry reading.  Parameters such as membrane elasticity, rigidity and other biomechanical properties can influence the accuracy of the intraocular pressure readings.

Diaton Non-corneal tonometry solves most of the corneal measurement issues by implementing Newton’s Second Law and a Ballistic principle to obtain IOP.  Readings with Diaton Tonometer are taken over the upper eyelid, at the tarsus and over the sclera, Not through the cornea.

Major Benefits of Diaton Tonometer:

  • No contact with the cornea (only upper eyelid and sclera)
  • No anesthesia drops
  • No risk of infecting or scratching cornea (safe: minimizing liability)
  • No consumables (cost efficient: no need to purchase replacement tips/covers..etc.,)
  • No sterilization (just alcohol swab is used to wipe off the tip)
  • No pachymetry needed (more accurate: no need to adjust for CCT or other corneal discrepancies)
  • No daily calibration needed (time savings)
  • Handheld / Portable + Easy to use (can be used by any trained staff)

Diaton Tonometer provides quick, painless and accurate measurements and makes it possible to diagnose glaucoma in its early stages, allowing users to devise an appropriate care and treatment plan. Diaton is effective in obtaining IOP measurements for many challenging patient populations, including: those with chronic conjunctivitis, erosions, edema and corneal dimness; people who have undergone corneal surgeries; post Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro) and immobilized patients and children. Also, patients do not need to remove their contact lenses for glaucoma IOP screening.

Diaton tonometer is clinically proven and has FDA, CE, Health Canada and many other international approvals.
