As a result of the advancements in optometry and ophthalmology, eye-related disorders such as glaucoma are being diagnosed and treated much more effectively. A good example is the transpalpebral scleral Diaton tonometer.
The Diaton Transpalpebral Scleral (through the eyelid and sclera) tonometer is a cutting-edge device that has revolutionized the measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP), a crucial parameter for diagnosing and managing glaucoma—a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide.
Traditionally, measuring IOP involved invasive techniques such as Goldmann or Tonopen tonometry which required direct contact with the cornea and numbing drops.
By offering a non-invasive, Through the Eyelid Tonometry solution, the Diaton transpalpebral scleral tonometer has transformed this process. With this advanced transpalpebral technology, IOP can be accurately measured without physical contact with the eyeball / cornea, or a need for adjustment for corneal parameters like central corneal thickness (CCT), crookidness, corneal rigidity, abraision or corneal infection. In addition, contact or scleral lenses do not need to be removed before IOP measurement.
With Diaton Tonometer IOP is measured above the edge of the limbus, with Diaton tonometers tip placed on the upper eyelid at the tarsus and sclera.
The advantages of transpalpebral scleral Diaton tonometry are manifold.
Firstly, it eliminates the discomfort associated with corneal / invasive methods, making it particularly beneficial for pediatric and apprehensive patients as Diaton tonometer does not touch the eyeball directly, not even with a puff of air.
Non-corneal tonometry methodology was clinically tested at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (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 the 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.,
Product Features & Major Benefits:
- Easy to use. Handheld, portable, pen-like device
- No contact with the cornea (only upper eyelid and sclera)
- No need for anesthesia drops or removal of contact lenses
- Safe: No risk of infecting or scratching cornea
- Cost efficient: No consumables (no need to purchase replacement tips/covers, etc.)
- No sterilization (just alcohol swab is used to wipe off the tip)
- Accurate: No pachymetry needed (independent of cornea)
- Ready-to-use: Daily calibration not required

Who Uses the Diaton Tonometer?
Diaton Tonometer is intended for use by Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Ophthalmic technicians as well as Inpatient & Outpatient Clinics such as Hospitals, Emergency Department / Emergency Room, Urgent Care Clinics, Nursing & Elderly Homes, General & Specialty Practitioners as well as for Mass Glaucoma Screening purposes and medical missions.
Non-corneal, Scleral Diaton tonometer is particularly useful in cases where standard direct applanation (corneal) tonometry is difficult or not viable, such as with pediatric patients, in the presence of certain corneal pathology, edema, infection, following corneal surgery, keratoconus, KPro and in cases of eye trauma.
