60 million Americans are at RISK for developing Glaucoma
Prevent Blindness America Survey found that:
* Blindness ranked third (after cancer and heart disease) as peoples major fear.
* It is estimated that over 4 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it.
* Glaucoma is 6 to 8 times more common in African-Americans than Caucasians.
* Everyone is at risk for glaucoma from babies to senior citizens. Yes, older people are at a higher risk for glaucoma but babies can be born with glaucoma (approximately 1 out of every 10,000 babies born in the United States).
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.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in all age groups - from children to senior citizens. Everyone needs to get diagnosed to prevent blindness.
While most people have heard of glaucoma, they may not realize that glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness in the United States. It may also come as a surprise that there are four major types of glaucoma.
Glaucoma is basically damage to the optic nerve, which carries information from the eye to the brain. Typically, this damage is caused by an increase in pressure to the eye known as Intra-Ocular Pressure (IOP). The front of your eye is filled with a fluid and if that fluid cannot leave the eye a buildup can occur and pressure forms.
The four major types of glaucoma are congenital glaucoma, secondary glaucoma, open angle glaucoma and angle closure glaucoma. Congenital glaucoma is present at birth and is often inherited. Secondary glaucoma is caused by medications, eye diseases, systemic diseases and trauma. Open angle glaucoma is the most common form and occurs over time. There is no known cause of open angle glaucoma but it does tend to be hereditary. Angle closure glaucoma is a sudden blockage and an emergency situation that needs to be treated immediately.
Besides determining the potential for glaucoma onset, Tonometer Diaton can also be used for monitoring treatment effectiveness throughout the day. Unlike other tonometers, Diaton can be used repeatedly during the day with no harmful effect on the eye.
Diaton tonometer is priced very competitively at only $2,495 USD and it is delivered complete (no need to purchase additional accessories, tips, covers..etc.,), free 2nd Year Warranty, Calibration Tester/ Training Plate (no need for daily calibration), Carry Case, Battery and Training DVD in 5 different languages + phone based training support.

MicoVas is used to increase blood flow and raise pressure gradients across capillary beds by significantly increasing venous return, the primary controller of cardiac output. Not only does MicroVas increase cellular oxygen levels within minutes but the levels remain sustained, resulting in faster healing not seen previously. MicroVas also strengthens muscles, stimulating a three mile walk during the usual 45 minute office therapy.
