Transpalpebral Diaton tonometer Featured at ASCRS ASOA American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Meeting

By May 22, 2017 No Comments

Team Diaton Tonometer showcases its innovative, “through the eyelid” glaucoma diagnostic tonometry technology at ASCRS ASOA meeting in Los Angeles, CA. Eye Surgeons find new ways to implement this non-invasive, cornea independent tonometry technology in cases where no other corneal tonometry devices can get an accurate intraocular pressure (IOP) results. Diaton obtains the IOP measurement through the upper eyelid, overlaying tarsus and sclera, not the cornea – making the technology unique and cornea independent.

Diaton Tonometer to be presented at 2 exhibits:

  1. SonomedEscalon Exhibit #1811
  2. Optimetrics Inc Exhibit #2501

Diaton tonometer is particularly useful in cases where standard direct applanation (corneal) tonometry is difficult or not viable, such as with pediatric patients, in presence of certain corneal pathology,
edema, infection, following corneal surgery, KPro and in cases of eye trauma.

Emil W. Chynn, MD, FASC from Park Avenue LASEK stated, – “As a Cornea-Refractive trained specialist, I encounter many situations where Goldmann readings are inherently inaccurate–like post-LASIK, in cases of corneal edema, scarring, post-keratoprosthesis or transplant. In such cases, it’s both invaluable and reassuring to have the Diaton device available to measure IOP that’s independent of corneal pathology”

“It works,” said Dr. Mark Latina, glaucoma specialist and the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), after revealing results of the study titled: “Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to
Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes”
