Diaton is the one tonometer that is capable to measure Intraocular Pressure (IOP) in the most innovative way: Through the Eyelid and via Sclera, without touching the eyeball direct and with no need for the eye drops. This painless, quick and non-invasive tonometry technology allows to accurately measure IOP in adults and pediatric population with no effect on the eye.
BiCOM Inc., home of Diaton tonometer, with 25 years of experience and innovation in ophthalmic devices brings this latest innovation in tonometry to the optometrists, ophthalmologists and other eye and healthcare practitioners to safely and accurately detect glaucoma, the speak thief of sight, on the early stages.
7 Reasons Why Every Eye Care Professional Must Own the DIATON:
- Easy to use. Can be used by any trained personnel
- Quick, Puff-free & Painless (Perfect for children and adults)
- No contact with the cornea (only upper eyelid and sclera)
- No need for anesthesia drops (no side effects)
- No need to take out Contacts or Scleral lenses (Only with Diaton)
- Safe: No risk of infecting or scratching cornea (safer vs other methods)
- Cost efficient: No consumables (no need to purchase replacement tips, probes or covers, etc.)
5 Extra Reasons Why Diaton Tonometer is a Must Have Solution:
- Latex-free, handheld, non-contact, portable, pen-like tonometer
- No sterilization (just alcohol swab is used to wipe off the tip)
- Accurate: No pachymetry needed (independent of corneal biomechanics)
- No special set-up needed (measure anytime, anywhere without the need of any other preparation before the eye examination)
- Ready-to-use: Daily calibration not required (saves time)
Diaton is the one tonometer which allows to get accurate IOP with corneal abnormalities by completely avoiding the cornea or the contact lenses or scleral contact lenses. Lenses can remain in the eye with Diaton tonometry.
“There has been a Renewed Concern about whether Scleral Lenses cause Increase in Intraocular Pressure.”
Multiple Studies showed IOP to elevate by ~5-7 mmHg regardless of scleral lens diameter worn.
Eye Doctors now Need to monitor IOP with Scleral Lenses IN the eye!
