Diaton tonometer is a handheld device measuring IOP through the eyelid and over the sclera with no contact to the cornea & causing no discomfort to the patient. Diaton is a pen-like tonometer that measures IOP within seconds without the need for anesthesia or sterilization.
diaton is a safe & easy-to-use screening tool which makes it possible to identify patients at risk for glaucoma & refer them to ophthalmology.
4.5 million people all over the world are blind due to glaucoma & this number will rise! Due to the silent progression of this disease, majority of the infected people do not even suppose that they have such a disease. The rise of IOP is one of the main factors that indicate glaucoma presence. And now, we present a safe & easy method to measure IOP, diaton tonometer, that can detect glaucoma at its early stage & as a result will help to save patients' eyes!
Method for measuring the intraocular pressure through the eyelid and the device realizing this method are protected by the Patent of Russia Ü_ 2123798, United States Patent Ü_ US 6,394,954 _ê1 and Patent of Japan Ü_3593314.
Nowadays transpalpebral scleral tonometry has no other alternative in the world. It is the most favourable method to carry out preclinical medical research of the population and , moreover,it works in such complicated clinical cases when it is impossible to use classical tonometry methods. Diaton is a helpful tool for ophthalmologists faced with pediatric patients or who have corneal abnormalities such as corneal edema, erosions or keratoprosthesis.
Approved by the FDA in 2006, the instrument has been the subject of numerous clinical trials, where it has been found to be comparable with the gold standard, the Goldmann tonometer, and with many other devices.
Innovative approach to IOP measurement opens up wide medical opportunities and indisputable benefits both for doctors & patients:
