Long Beach, NY, United States, 2008/04/04 - BiCOM Inc. is proud to present its unparalleled Trans-palpebral and Tras-scleral tonometer Diaton to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery ASCRS on April 4th – 9th, hosted by the city of Chicago Booth # 1959.
Exhibition of Diaton tonometer to the members of American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) presents a great opportunity for BiCOM to display the uniqueness of the trans-palpebral and tras-scleral Diaton tonometry – tonometery through the Eyelid.
Mr. Ross McDonald, Vice President of Northern Optotronics NOI (Diaton tonometer distributor in Canada) and a 25-year veteran of the ophthalmic and medical device industries, after the introduction of Diaton tonometers to Ophthalmic Surgeons said, "In my 25 years of experience in the ophthalmic industry, this is the first time that I see so much interest in a new product. Tonometer Diaton will have great success in the market."
Diaton Tonometry is an incomparable approach to measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) THROUGH THE EYELID - no contact with the cornea, no anesthesia or sterilization is required. BiCOM's pen-like, hand-held, portable device is perfect for measuring eye pressure and helps ophthalmologists and optometrists in diagnosis and prevention of blindness caused by glaucoma. This ophthalmic device is irreplaceable for mass glaucoma screenings.
Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other devices is problematic or impossible:
• mass prophylactic screening of patients;
• IOP control during clinical observation of glaucoma patients;
• ortoclinostatical probe, as an additional test to diagnose glaucoma and during select the adequate hypotensive therapy;
• ophthalmotone monitoring (even at night time);
• IOP measuring during contact correction (lenses are not taken out);
• IOP measuring in immobilized patients;
• IOP measuring in children;
• on patients with the following conditions: chronic conjunctivitis, cornea pathology, including keratitis, keratotone, cornea dimness, after penetrating keratoplastics, keratoprosthesis, laser refractive correction of the eyesight, high degree of ametropy, astigmatism;
• on patients with medicinal allergies;
• Lasik, LASEK, PRK (recent clinical trials have proved that Diaton is the only device that can be used for IOP measurement right after these surgeries)
This new transpalpebral methodology has received the Gold Medal at the International Exhibition of Innovation Research and New Technology - "Brussels Eureca" & the Gold Medal at the International Exhibition of Research and new Technology in Geneva. Portability, safety and simplicity make Tonometer Diaton ideal for a wide range of applications: for mass screening of the population, at the patient's bedside, in geriatrics homes, in children hospitals, for the military and for home use.
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 effect on the eye.
