DIATON® Tonometer Pen Featured at ACEP 2013 Scientific Assembly of American College of Emergency Physicians, Seattle WA
Diaton through the Eyelid Tonometer Pen is proud to be featured at American College of Emergency Physicians ACEP 2013 Scientific Assembly by BiCOM Inc. Diaton is the only tonometer to allow measurements of intraocular pressure IOP through upper eyelid and sclera without numbing drops or effect of the cornea, without touching the eyeball. Diaton tonometer pen is a trusted choice for Emergency Room (ER) or Emergency Departments (ED)
DIATON® Tonometer Pen ( BiCOM Inc, USA) is Non-corneal, Non-contact, Transpalpebral (through eyelid) handheld tonometer – product number N477.
DIATON® PEN TONOMETER is a handheld, pen-shaped device used for measuring intraocular pressures (IOP). The DIATON Pen tonometer calculates pressure by measuring the response of a free-falling floater, as it rebounds against the tarsal plate of the eyelid and the sclera.
The patient is positioned so that the tip of the device and lid are overlying sclera, in either sitting or supine position.
Non-corneal and transpalpebral tonometry does not involve contact with the cornea and does not require topical anesthetic during routine use. Contact lenses do not need to be taken out and central corneal thickness (CCT) and other corneal properties do not influence the IOP measurement. Most Emergency Rooms and Departments aren’t equipped with pachymetry to measure central thickness of the cornea – Diaton provides a complete and accurate results without influence of biometry of the cornea.
In Emergency Department and Acute Care settings IOP measurement is indicated in cases of acute eye injury, acute eye pain, red eye, and acute loss of visual acuity. Normal intraocular pressure ranges between 10-20 mmHg.
Diaton Tonometer provides reliable measurements and makes it possible to diagnose glaucoma in its early stages, allowing you 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.
