Transpalpebral #ophthalmic tonometer Diaton was designed by a group of ophthalmologists & engineers. There was the task to design portable + simple in use device, which could provide IOP measuring through the #eyelid not only in ophthalmology studies but at home as well. It should possess enough accuracy, quick operation and provide the possibility to carry out IOP monitoring that is very important both for glaucoma diagnostics and for controlling the effectiveness of treatment. “Digital Portable Tonometer of Ocular Pressure” (Diaton) designed by us fulfills all these tasks (fig.1).

The advantages of Diaton Transpalpebral Tonometer in a nutshell

Overall, Diaton Transpalpebral Tonometer is now one of the most recommended and clinically tested non-contact tonometers in the market today because of its many advantages in examining the intraocular pressure, which include:

  1. Non-contact to the corneal during measurement of intraocular pressure
  2. Elimination of pain during eye examination without the need for local anesthetics
  3. Elimination of the influences of the individual eyelids’ peculiarities during tonometry readings
  4. Prevention in the increase of eye muscles’ tone (a normal response to pain resulting from a cornea-irritating eye procedure) that may alter the results of an intraocular pressure reading
  5. Elimination of the need for thorough sterilization before the procedure
  6. Prevention of possible bacterial or viral infection that may arise from direct contact with the cornea during a traditional tonometry
  7. Ability to measure the intraocular pressure despite possible presence of other eye conditions, such as conjunctivitis, corneal edema, and corneal erosions
  8. Utilization of the handy, easy-to-use, hand-held Diaton Transpalpebral Tonometer anytime, anywhere without the need of any other preparation before the eye examination
  9. More accurate measure value that is closer to the real intraocular pressure of patients with keratoconus compared to the values extracted using the Goldmann tonometer
  10. Ability to measure intraocular pressure in patients with keratoprostheses (KPro)
