Long Beach, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2016 -- Innovative glaucoma diagnostic technology DIATON Tonometer allows to measure intraocular pressure (IOP) through the upper eyelid, without the need to touch the eyeball or need to use numbing drops was represented at NYC Medtech Forum by BiCOM Inc Team. This unique technology solves many problems to obtain IOP especially in cases where cornea is distorted or a simple and quick glaucoma screening.
Clinically proven and market ready Diaton transpalpebral tonometry technology already has FDA, CE and other international approvals and certifications and is available for sale in over 60 countries.
Non-corneal tonometry methodology was clinically tested at MEEI/Harvard Medical School by Dr. Mark Latina and colleagues – where Diaton provided a new and unique way of looking at IOP completely independent of corneal biometrics as the reading with Diaton tonometer is done through the eyelid and more importantly the sclera, not through the cornea as all other technologies which are influenced by irregularities of the cornea.
Diaton Tonometer, manufactured with precision received Gold Medal at the International Exhibition of Research and new Technology in Geneva & the Gold Medal at the International Exhibition of Innovation Research and New Technology – "Brussels Eureca".
