Long Beach, NY, United States, 2007/05/30 - BiCOM's Diaton (transpalpebral) tonometer distributor Farbac, an ophthalmic devices distributor in Mexico will be featuring Diaton tonometer at Booths #150 & 151. Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc will be available for Q&A session after the Congress.
Unique tonometry through the Eyelid (el tonómetro Diaton, que toma la presión intraocular a través del párpado) will be introduced to Latin America at XVII Pan American Congress of Ophthalmology in a beautiful City of Cancun, México. Glaucoma is now treatable if detected early. BiCOM, Inc. plans to establish distributors in every Latin American country.
XVII Pan American Congress of Ophthalmology is a perfect entry point for BiCOM to introduce the unique tonometer Diaton to the thousands of participants arriving from México, Trinidad & Tobago, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Panama, Bolivia, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Perú, Honduras, Nicaragua and Argentina.
BiCOM is currently evaluating ophthalmic and medical device distributors for each country in Latin America.
Mr. Iospa says "BiCOM plans to participate in Glaucoma, Blindness awareness campaigns and programs initiated by either governments or private and non for profit organizations. Since intra ocular pressure (IOP) is being measured though the eyelid without contact with cornea and no sterilization or anesthesia is required, Diton tonometer becomes the only tool that enables mass IOP screenings."
Latin America is a strong expansion point for Diaton Transpalpebral (through the Eyelid) tonometry, covering population of over 560 million in addition to 335 million in North America (ref. World Gazetteer).
BiCOM Inc. plans to expand the reach of its unique Diaton tonometry to the Middle Eastern and Asian countries within next 3-6 months.
