Unique Tonometer Diaton Presented at Optometry's Meeting AOA/AOSA to 1000's of Optometrists. Non-corneal Diaton Tonometry Revolutionizes Glaucoma Testing for Doctors and Patients
The only non-corneal and non-contact tonometer Diaton now enables optometrists and other eyecare and healthcare professionals who provide primary vision care to test intraocular pressure (IOP) for glaucoma Through the EYELID. Quick and painless, handheld Diaton pen-like tonometer readings are not affected by contact lenses or other corneal properties.
- (1888PressRelease) June 30, 2011 - BiCOM Inc., home of tonometer Diaton is proud to present this unique optometric tonometry device to battle glaucoma, the second leading treatable cause of blindness in the United States. Glaucoma is a condition in which deterioration of the optic nerve leads to progressive loss of field of vision in patients of all ages.
Diaton tonometer is a clinically proven method of non-invasive (no contact with cornea) and non-corneal tonometry, where glaucoma IOP eye test is done over the upper eyelid, at tarsal plate and more importantly over sclera, eliminating effect of biomechanical properties of the corena.
Although Goldmann applanation tonometry still considers to be the gold standard for measuring IOP, it is not fool proof - "Each eye and more importantly, the cornea is different, where various corneal biomechanical parameters such as corneal thickness, rigidity, previous corneal surgeries or LASIK, conditions such as corneal edema influence Goldman readings as well as TonoPen, Airpuff, NCT…etc., - in other words all the other corneal or cornea influenced methods of tonometry.
Diaton tonometer takes cornea out of the equation and provides IOP results independent of corneal properties." - said Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.,
Multiple clinical studies comparing Diaton and other tonometers were conducted by reputable institutions and doctors. "It works," said Dr. Mark Latina, glaucoma specialist and the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), after revealing results of the study titled: "Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes"
Diaton tonometer is the only Non-corneal and over the eyelid tonometer on the market, the results are independent of corneal biomechanics such as corneal thickness (CCT), crookedness, other biomechanical properties where intraocular pressure can be obtained in patients still wearing contact lenses. In addition, non-invasive tonometry technique eliminates the risk of infecting or scratching the cornea and it does not need to be sterilized and is perfect for use in remote locations as well as for mass glaucoma screenings. Diaton can be used repeatedly during the day with no effect on the eye.
