Glaucoma is a group of silent diseases that can damage the optic nerve of the eye and lead to vision loss and blindness. Primary open-angle glaucoma is the most common form. In this condition, fluid builds up in the front chamber of the eye, and the optic nerve is damaged by the resulting increase in eye pressure. This potentially blinding eye disease affects 2.7 million people nationwide, and studies show that at least half of all people with glaucoma do not know they have it.
Since DIATON is non-contact and handheld pen-like tonometer, it can be used in any setting – rural areas that desperately need glaucoma screening or Inpatient & Outpatient Clinics such as Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, Nursing & Elderly Homes, General, Family & Specialty Practitioners office as well as Ophthalmic and Optometric practice.

DIATON Tonometer provides reliable measurements and makes it possible to diagnose glaucoma in its early stages, allowing 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.
Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc., said, – “We’re excited to be able to participate in the local community events and provide free screenings with our non-invasive Diaton tonometer technology for quick glaucoma testing initiatives.”
