When IOP is measured through the Upper Eyelid & Sclera with #Diaton #tonometer (#BiCOM Inc.,) vs touching/applanating the #Cornea with #Tono-pen or #Goldmann – IOP results obtained with Diaton tonometer are already independent of corneal properties and do not need to be adjusted.
Goldmann #applanation tonometry (GAT) is the gold standard for measuring IOP and most probably will continue to be so into the future. However, its limitations were obvious from the start and include the substantial effects of several eye variables such as axial length, curvature, rigidity and #cornealthickness. Also, in some #eyes, especially those with #corneal problems (such as diseases, trauma, haze, corneal opacities, leucomas, etc.) and #surgery, taking measurements is not easy.
DIATON unique “Latex-Free” tonometry device is irreplaceable in ER/ED setting.
The non-invasive technique with #transpalpebral and trans-scleral DIATON Tonometer, eliminates the risk of infecting or scratching the cornea and no numbing #drops are required to measure the pressure, without recovery time needed + there is no need to adjust IOP for corneal irregularities such as central corneal thickness (CCT) with additional device that is not likely to be present in ER/ED setting – #pachymeter.
For example: many older or post #LASIK patients have thinner corneas as a result all invasive, corneal tonometry devices such as Tono-pen or Goldmann will inaccurately provide lower IOP results, unlike scleral Diaton Tonometer, which is not influenced by cornea; with all this making the screening with Diaton tonometer quick and complete – making users much more efficient.
Having Diaton tonometer in ER/ED is like having 2 devices in 1….: Tonometer + Pachymeter
