Diaton® tonometer to be presented by FarbaC Biomedical, Diaton distributor in Mexico.
Since Diaton is Non-corneal and Over the Eyelid, the results are independent of corneal properties such as corneal thickness, crookedness and intraocular pressure can be obtained with patients still wearing contact lenses (no other device can). Also, non-invasive technique eliminates risk of infecting or scratching the cornea and no numbing drops are required to measure the pressure and no recovery time is needed + there is no need to adjust for corneal irregularities such as central corneal thickness CCT , with all this making the screening with Diaton quick and complete - making users much more efficient.
Major Benefits of Diaton Tonometer:
- No contact with the cornea (only upper eyelid and sclera)
- No need for anesthesia drops
- No risk of infecting or scratching cornea (safer than other methods)
- No consumables (cost efficient: no need to purchase replacement tips/covers..etc.,)
- No sterilization (just alcohol swab is used to wipe off the tip)
- No pachymetry needed (more accurate: independent of CCT or other corneal biomechanics)
- No daily calibration needed (ready-to-use and saves time)
