Unlike Goldmann / Contact tonometry which is based on the Imbert–Fick law and is effected by CCT and other corneal parameters and corneal diseases, where small area of the membrane is flattened to measure pressure of the internal fluid.  Evidence shows that variations in CCT may greatly influence Goldmann tonometry reading.  Parameters such as membrane elasticity, rigidity and other biomechanical properties can influence the accuracy of the intraocular pressure readings.

Diaton Non-corneal tonometry solves most of the corneal measurement issues by implementing Newton’s Second Law and a Ballistic principle to obtain IOP.  Readings with Diaton Tonometer are taken over the upper eyelid, at the tarsus and over the sclera, Not through the cornea.
Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other devices is problematic or impossible:

· Mass screening of patients.
· IOP control during clinical observation and selection of adequate hypotensive therapy for glaucoma patients.
· Serial tonometry for obtaining Diurinal curve.
· IOP can be obtained without removing contact lenses.
· IOP measuring in immobilized patients – measurement can be done sitting or supine.
· IOP measuring in children. Measurement is taken outside of the visual field.
· Patients with the following conditions: chronic conjunctivitis, corneal pathology including keratitis, keratotone, corneal dimness, after penetrating keratoplastics, keratoprosthesis, laser refractive correction, high degree of ametropy, astigmatism.
· On patients with medicinal allergies.
· Lasik / LASEK / PRK (Diaton can be used for IOP measurement right after these surgeries)

Diaton Tonometer provides quick, painless and accurate measurements and makes it possible to diagnose glaucoma in its early stages, allowing users to devise an appropriate care and treatment plan. Diaton is effective in obtaining IOP measurements for many challenging patient populations, including: those with chronic conjunctivitis, erosions, edema and corneal dimness; people who have undergone corneal surgeries; post Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro) and immobilized patients and children. Also, patients do not need to remove their contact lenses for glaucoma IOP screening.

Sixty million Americans are at RISK for developing Glaucoma. Glaucoma is usually symptomless and vision loss is irreversible. Timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment are key to glaucoma prevention.

Most insurance companies require Glaucoma testing as part of the Preventive Care Services Act.

General, primary and family physicians, who are on the forefront of seeing patients at risk of glaucoma each day, now are able to use Diaton through the eyelid tonometer for quick glaucoma IOP exam and refer patients with elevated pressure to an eyecare professional.

Individuals at higher risk include African Americans over age 40; everyone over age 50, especially Mexican Americans; and people with a family history of glaucoma and diabetes.


Prevent Blindness America Survey estimates that over 4 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it. It is important to get the eye pressure (IOP) checked at least once a year. Glaucoma is 6 to 8 times more common in African-Americans than Caucasians. With early detection, medications and surgeries can be used to prevent further vision loss.


Today, unique Diaton tonometer pen http://www.TonometerDiaton.com allows intraocular pressure (IOP) to be measured easier & safer than ever before in an in-office setting. Diaton Tonometry is a unique approach of measuring IOP through the upper eyelid, without the need for eye drops, never touching the cornea, reducing risk of infection and allowing maximum comfort for the patient without taking out contact lenses.


Diaton Tonometer is Clinically Proven to be a Top Choice for Quick and Painless Intraocular Pressure (IOP) testing for Glaucoma in Children and Adults in Any Clinical Setting.

Diaton allows to be more efficient and armed with the latest technology available.


“With the introduction of our unique Tonometer Diaton – Glaucoma Eye Test through the Eyelid to the Family, General and Internal practices, we’re proud to challenge Glaucoma, a ‘silent thief of sight,’ that carries an ever increasing threat of causing blindness as the aging population is growing in the U.S. and abroad,” said Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.

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.

Tonometry through eyelid trans-palpebral-sclera tonometer

Diaton Transpalpebral and Non-corneal tonometer presented at Optometry’s Meeting AOA, in Philadelphia

In AOA, BiCOM, blindness, cornea, diaton, diaton tonometer, eye exam, eye pressure, eye test, eyelid tonometer, glaucoma, health, intraocular pressure, iop, optometrist, optometry, tonometer, tonometers, tonometry on September 19, 2014 at 10:16 pm

Through the eyelid tonometer Diaton was featured at the Optometry’s Meeting in Philadelphia. Diaton allows quick and painless measurements of intraocular pressure independent of corneal properties.


Recent clinical study Comparing of Accuracy of Diaton Transpalpebral Tonometer Versus Goldmann Applanation Tonometer, Dynamic Contour Tonometer and Ocular Response Analyzer show the following results:
Henry D Perry, MD, Valeriy Erichev, MD PhD; E S Avetisov MD; Alla Illarionova, MD,Alexey Antonov MD;

PURPOSE:
To compare intraocular pressure measurements obtained with the diaton transpalpebral tonometer with those from ocular response analyzer (ORA), dynamic (should be in same order as title) contour tonometry (DCT) and Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) inpatients diagnosed with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and glaucoma suspects, and to determine the effects of central corneal thickness (CCT) and corneal hysteresis (CH) on intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements with these devices.

METHODS:
40 patients (80 eyes) age 42-83 years with POAG and glaucoma suspects wereincluded in the study. The average of ORA (corneal compensated IOP [IOP-ORAcc] and Goldmann-correlated IOP [IOP-ORAg]), DCT, GAT, and Diaton tonometer levels werecompared and the devices were examined with respect to CCT and CH. Spearman’s correlation tests were used for statistical analysis.
RESULTS:
Mean CCT was 561,2±32,4mum and mean CH was 10.6+/-2.0 mmHg. Mean IOP obtained using DCT was 18,9±4,1 mmHg, whereas those provided by ORA were 18,2±3,4mmHg for IOP-ORAcc and 18,4±3,5 mmHg for IOP-ORAg. The mean IOP obtained using GATand Diaton were 18,4±4,1 mmHg and 17,0±3,0 mmHg respectively.The performed analysis of correlation between IOP meanings shows high conformity of results of Diaton with IOP-ORAcc and DCT. The differences between the measurements of DCT, ORAand Diaton were statistically significant. Correlated rates relations: between IOP-ORAcc andDCT 0,89; between IOP-ORAcc and Diaton 0,96; IOP-ORAcc and GAT 0,56; between GATand Diaton 0,61; GAT and DCT 0,73; DCT and Diaton 0,87.
CONCLUSIONS:
Transpalpebral Tonometry is an accurate method of IOP measurement that is also independent from the biomechanical characteristics of cornea.It can be recommended for IOP measurements of patients diagnosed with glaucoma including those cases where cornea pathology or cornea characteristics have been altered.

Diaton was very well received at the meeting with many Optometry School professors looking forward of adding this tonometer to the OD curriculum.

Diaton tonometer is a perfect device for mass screenings for glaucoma for any age group. Undiagnosed and untreated, glaucoma can cause blindness. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in all age groups – from babies to senior citizens. Everyone needs to get diagnosed to preserve eyesight.
