Groundbreaking tonometry technology from BiCOM Inc., now allows Emergency Departments and Rooms (ED / ER) in hospitals to accurately screen patients of all ages for elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) through eyelid and sclera, without touching the eyeball direct and without need of numbing drops. Unique tonometer Diaton eliminates the risk of infection or scratching the cornea and obtains IOP independent of central corneal (CCT) properties or influence of past eye surgeries as reading is done over the upper eyelid and sclera, making it user and patient friendly.
Home of Diaton Tonometer, BiCOM Inc., is at Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Expo in Jacob Javits Center, New York. The MD&M East Expo and Conference is the largest, most important and comprehensive medical design & manufacturing event on the East Coast. It’s the gathering point for more than 500 leading medtech suppliers and manufacturers, including 3M, Abbott, Nypro Healthcare, Phillips-Medisize, and Stratasys.
BiCOM Inc., is a home of groundbreaking transpalpebral glaucoma diagnostics technology through the eyelid and sclera Diaton tonometer used by ophthalmologists, optometrists and other healthcare professionals in over 60 countries.
Diaton tonometer featured at ASCRS ASOA Annual Meeting in New Orleans at Exhibit #2023 Sonomed Escalon and BiCOM Inc. Diaton allows to obtain cornea independent IOP with unique transpalpebral and transscleral tonometry, which presents an advancement in ophthalmology and glaucoma detection overall.
Unique Diaton tonometer presented at ARVO 2016 Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) is the largest gathering of eye and vision researchers in the world, attracting over 11,000 attendees from more than 75 countries. About 45% of our attendees are from outside the U.S.
Diaton Tonometer presents a unique advancement in glaucoma diagnostics by allowing eye care and other professionals to accurately measure intraocular pressure (IOP) through the upper eyelid and sclera, without direct contact with an eyeball and without influence of corneal biometrics on the accuracy of the readings. Diaton readings are not influenced by central corneal thickness (CCT), corneal crookedness, scarred cornea or corneal edema vs all other cornea dependent devices such as Goldmann, Tonopen, Icare, Perkins, Accutome, Schiotz and other tonometers that measure directly via contact with the cornea. With Diaton even contact lenses do not need to be removed for accurate results as the reading is done above the edge of the contact lens. This patient and user friendly tonometry device allows quick, painless and efficient glaucoma screening in children and adults. Diaton is showcased by BiCOM Inc, and colleagues at the International Vision Expo East in New York to 35,000 visitors at the medical pavilion, exhibit #7034.
Pen-like tonometer designed to be patient-friendly
Noncontact device measures IOP quickly, shows results similar to ‘gold standard’ in studies
Long Beach, NY-A handheld tonometer that measures IOP through the eyelid and over the sclera is proving to be helpful for ophthalmologists faced with patients who are apprehensive about seeing an instrument approaching their eyes or who have a corneal abnormality, according to several ophthalmologists who have studied it.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of global irreversible blindness. Blindness ranked 3rd (after cancer and heart disease) as people’s major fear. BiCOM Inc. with its Non-Corneal and Through-the-Eyelid DIATON Tonometer is challenging the “Sneak Thief of Sight” through awareness and screening events. BiCOM is advising and guiding all of its distributors located in over 60 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Middle East to participate in the World Glaucoma Week on March 6th-12th through Screening and Awareness campaigns.
Since IntraOcular Pressure (IOP) is one of the major risk factors for developing Glaucoma, early detection is the key to preventing blindness.
Diaton tonometer is presented by FarbaC Biomedical. The World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC) starts in Guadalajara on Friday 5 February, with a packed schedule of presentations,Team FarbaC will present and conduct training sessions for Diaton tonometer STAND 114 – please find more at: http://www.farbac.mx/tonometro.html

Team Diaton tonometer and BiCOM Inc supports January Glaucoma Awareness Month. Over 3 million Americans, and over 60 million people worldwide, have glaucoma. Experts estimate that half of them don’t know they have it. Combined with our aging population, we can see an epidemic of blindness looming if we don’t raise awareness about the importance of regular eye examinations to preserve vision. The World Health Organization estimates that 4.5 million people worldwide are blind due to glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. People are often unaware that glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages.
If detected early, before noticeable vision loss occurs, glaucoma can usually be controlled and severe vision loss can often be prevented. Vision that is lost from glaucoma cannot be restored.
Anyone can get glaucoma, but those at higher risk include:
- African Americans over age 40
- Everyone over age 50, especially Hispanics/Latinos
- People with a family history of the disease
In a study published by the British Journal of Ophthalmology, the number of people with glaucoma worldwide is expected to be 79.6 million by 2020 and 111.8 million by 2040.
