Innovative and unique tonometer Diaton pen, tonometry through Eyelid presented at The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology ARVO by BiCOM Inc. New Clinical Study presented "Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes". "It works," says Dr. Mark Latina, the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT).
Online PR News – 22-May-2011 – – 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 biometric 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.
Yet another successful clinical comparison to the Gold standard Goldmann study presented at ARVO "Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes" by Authors: M.A. Latina 1, T.A. Shazly 2, R. Iospa 3, E.W. Chynn 4. From 1 Reading Health Center, Reading, MA; 2 Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary MEEI, Boston, MA; 3 Bicom, Inc., New York, NY; 4 Park Avenue Laser Vision, New York, NY.
In an interview, Dr. Latina said IOP measurements with the Diaton tonometer are equivalent to Goldmann applanation tonometry. The Diaton tonometry device offers a safe, noncontact method of measuring pressure via the eyelid, he said.
"It works," said Dr. Mark Latina the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT).
"At the end of the study, we reached the conclusion that the transpalpebral technique is a very promising method for tonometry, especially for screening and in patients with corneal pathology," Dr. Shazly said.
Dr. Chynn said that the device might be a good instrument for family practitioners who screen patients for glaucoma, because it does not require anesthesia and can be performed simply in an office setting.
Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other tonometry devices is problematic or Keratoprosthesis, Keratoplastics, impossible: Keratitis, Conjunctivitis, Keratotone, Cornea Dimness, LASIK, LASEK, PRK, Astigmatism, Ametropy, etc.,
Diaton tonometer is intended for use by Inpatient & Outpatient Clinics such as Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, Nursing & Elderly Homes, General & Specialty Practitioners as well as Ophthalmologists and Optometrists.
