Unique transpalpebral & scleral tonometry by Diaton is featured at the Vision Expo East in New York. This innovative tonometry method allows eye care professionals to obtain accurate intraocular pressure (IOP) independent of corneal biomechanics.

Diaton is exhibited at MS4633 – please stop by for demo and training.

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.
Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other devices is problematic or impossible:
  • · Mass screening of patients.
  • · IOP control during clinical observation and selection of adequate hypotensive therapy for glaucoma patients.
  • · Serial tonometry for obtaining Diurinal curve.
  • · IOP can be obtained without removing contact lenses.
  • · IOP measuring in immobilized patients – measurement can be done sitting or supine.
  • · IOP measuring in children. Measurement is taken outside of the visual field.
  • · Patients with the following conditions: chronic conjunctivitis, corneal pathology including keratitis, keratotone, corneal dimness, after penetrating keratoplastics, keratoprosthesis, laser refractive correction, high degree of ametropy, astigmatism.
  • · On patients with medicinal allergies.
  • · Lasik / LASEK / PRK (Diaton can be used for IOP measurement right after these surgeries)
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.
