BiCOM Inc., as well as the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) with 27,000 members worldwide http://www.aao.org and American Optometric Association (AOA) representing 34,000 members http://www.aoa.org urge you to get your eyes checked regularly.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness worldwide. 

60 million Americans are at RISK for developing Glaucoma

Prevent Blindness America Survey found that:

  • Blindness ranked third (after cancer and heart disease) as people’s major fear.
  • It is estimated that over 4 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it.
  • Glaucoma is 6 to 8 times more common in African-Americans than Caucasians.
  • Everyone is at risk for glaucoma from babies to senior citizens. Yes, older people are at a higher risk for glaucoma but babies can be born with glaucoma (approximately 1 out of every 10,000 babies born in the United States).

 Often people experience loss of peripheral (side) vision first and compensate for this loss by turning their head. It is imperative to get regular Glaucoma check-ups, as there are medications and surgeries that can be used at the on-set of Glaucoma to stave off vision loss.

“Once you lose your vision, you will never regain it again – wouldn’t you rather catch it before the damage is done?” says Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.

Diaton tonometer, through the eyelid Tonometry Exam, can be found and performed in 1000's of locations worldwide such as Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, Nursing & Elderly Homes. It has been noted that even General & Specialty Practitioners are joining Ophthalmologists and Optometrists in the Fight with Glaucoma.

Tonometry is the name of the procedure to test Eye or intraocular pressure or IOP and can be done by most Ophthalmologists and Optometrists. "With the introduction of our unique Tonometer Diaton – tonometry through the Eyelid, we're proud to challenge Glaucoma, a 'silent thief of sight', that carries an ever increasing threat of causing blindness as the aging population is growing in the U.S. and abroad," said Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.

By 2020, 43 million Americans will suffer significant vision loss or even blindness, the Academy predicts. Aside from protecting the eyes from accidents, early detection and treatment of vision-threatening problems is the Key to protecting one's sight and quality of life for later years.
