Transpalpebral Scleral Diaton tonometer allows to measure IOP without touching the Ocular Surface with that enabling eye care and healthcare practitioners to safely obtain intraocular pressure, while minimizing the risk of the COVID19 spread.
Today, many practices are switching to Diaton, the least invasive tonometer (IOP THROUGH EYELID) as the airborne covid-19 rapidly changes how practices operate and adjust to the virus preventive, non-invasive technologies. Ref ( A group of 239 scientists says there’s growing evidence covid-19 is airborne )
PPE for IOP = Personal Protection Equipment for Intraocular Pressure Measuring
As practices adjust to the New and Safer ways, personal and patient protection equipment is being implemented. Diaton tonometer always had an inherent ability to Safer measure intraocular pressure via eyelid vs via cornea contact. During this transpalpebral trans-scleral tonometry test ocular surface or the mucous membrane is not being touched by the device, with that making this tonometry method the safest way to not touch or spread possibly covid19 contaminated tear.
Numerous clinical studies have shown that the coronavirus / SARS-CoV-2 could spread through surface of the eyes
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have found that the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus could spread via ocular or eye surfaces. This is because the receptor where the virus binds – the ACE2, is also expressed on human eyes, they note. The study titled, “ACE2 and TMPRSS2 are expressed on the human ocular surface, suggesting susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 infection,” was published online at the preprint server biorxiv prior to peer review.
Diaton Tonometer’s non-invasive technology is now considered as PPE for IOP.
Roman Iospa, CEO of DevelopAll Inc., home of Diaton Tonometer stated, – “Our Team is proud to have the Safest tonometry technology and become a part of the Solution. It became a matter of life and death…and we’re able to assist practitioners to prevent the virus spread.”
“The Team Diaton has been tirelessly working during the coronavirus pandemic to ensure that all the practitioners were aware of the safer way to measure the eye pressure and have received the Diatons in time of the re-opening.” – Roman added.
Where to Find more Information about Diaton Safer Tonometer?
Now there is a safer way to measure intraocular pressure IOP via upper eyelid and sclera, without touching the surface of the eye. The transpalpebral scleral tonometer Diaton, by DevelopAll Inc., offers such innovative solution for optometrists, ophthalmologists and hospitals (emergency rooms and detartments)
Many health care and eye care professionals now implement this via eyelid tonometry technology to keep their patients, staff and doctors safer.
