Non-corneal tonometry methodology was clinically tested at MEEI/Harvard Medical School by Dr. Mark Latina and colleagues – where Diaton provided a new and unique way of looking at IOP completely independent of corneal biometrics as the reading with Diaton is done via eyelid and more importantly the sclera, not through the cornea as all other tonometers.

Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other tonometry devices is problematic or impossible: Keratitis, Conjunctivitis, Keratotone, Cornea Dimness, Keratoprosthesis, Keratoplastics, LASIK, LASEK, PRK, Astigmatism, Ametropy, etc.,
