Major Benefits of Diaton Tonometer

Welcome to the revolutionary world of Diaton Tonometer – the choice of healthcare professionals and patients alike for its unparalleled advantages in eye pressure monitoring. Here’s why Diaton stands out:

  • User-Friendly Design: Crafted for simplicity, Diaton can be operated by any trained individual, making it a versatile tool in any medical setting.
  • Efficient and Comfortable: Experience swift, puff-free, and completely painless measurements, ideal for both children and adults, thanks to its innovative approach that avoids direct corneal contact.
  • Non-Invasive Technology: Uniquely designed to measure eye pressure via the upper eyelid and sclera, eliminating the need for anesthesia drops and thereby sidestepping potential side effects.
  • Convenience at Its Best: With Diaton, there’s no need to remove contact or scleral lenses before testing – a feature exclusive to this device.
  • Unmatched Safety: By avoiding direct contact with the cornea, Diaton significantly reduces the risk of infections or corneal damage, offering a safer alternative compared to traditional methods.
  • Economical Solution: Say goodbye to ongoing costs for consumables like replacement tips, probes, or covers. Diaton is a one-time investment that keeps on giving.
  • Portable Precision: This latex-free, handheld, non-contact, pen-like tonometer is not only easy to carry but also ensures accurate measurements without the influence of corneal biomechanics, negating the need for pachymetry.
  • Hassle-Free Maintenance: Simple cleaning with an alcohol swab is all it takes to keep Diaton ready for use, eliminating the need for time-consuming sterilization processes or a need for extra probes.
  • Versatile and Reliable: Ready when you are, without the need for daily calibration, Diaton allows for immediate use and facilitates eye pressure monitoring even with contact or scleral lenses.

Diaton Tonometer represents a significant advancement in eye care, offering a blend of safety, efficiency, and convenience. It’s designed to support healthcare professionals in providing the best care possible, ensuring accurate intraocular pressure (IOP) monitoring anytime, anywhere, with ease and reliability.

Diaton Tonometer in Action

Who Uses the Diaton Tonometer?

Explore the Versatility of Diaton Tonometer: A Must-Have for Eye Care Professionals

Diaton Tonometer is a groundbreaking tool designed for a wide array of medical professionals and healthcare settings, including:

  • Ophthalmologists and Optometrists: Primary users who value its accuracy and non-invasive approach.
  • Ophthalmic Technicians: Benefit from its ease of use and reliability.
  • Healthcare Facilities: Including Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, Urgent Care Clinics, Nursing and Elderly Homes, catering to a diverse patient demographic.
  • General & Specialty Practitioners: Who appreciate the added value it brings to their practice.

Ideal for Challenging Cases: Diaton’s non-corneal, scleral approach makes it particularly useful in scenarios where traditional methods fall short, such as:

  • Pediatric care
  • Presence of corneal pathologies, edema, or infections
  • Post-corneal surgery
  • Conditions like keratoconus or when KPro is present
  • Cases of eye trauma

Key Insights and Applications:

  • Scleral Lenses & IOP: Recent studies have highlighted concerns about scleral lenses potentially elevating IOP by approximately 5-10 mmHg. Diaton offers a solution by allowing IOP monitoring without removing the scleral lenses, enhancing both safety and convenience for practitioners and patients alike.
  • Enhanced Patient Care: Utilizing Diaton for IOP monitoring minimizes risks and liabilities for practices while elevating the level of patient care, as recognized by industry publications such as Contact Lens Spectrum.
  • Infection Prevention: Diaton’s unique transpalpebral approach, measuring IOP through the eyelid without contacting the cornea or mucous membranes, positions it as the safest tonometry option available today, crucial for infection prevention.

In Conclusion: Diaton Tonometer is not just an innovative device; it’s a game-changer in eye care, offering unparalleled safety, efficiency, and versatility. Its ability to accurately measure IOP through the eyelid, without direct corneal contact, makes it an invaluable asset for eye care professionals seeking to provide the highest standards of patient care while navigating the complexities of various eye conditions and treatments.

Diaton Tonometer: How To

A Unique Approach

“Diaton tonometry” is a unique approach to measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) through the Eyelid and Sclera. Non-Contact (no contact with cornea), no anesthesia or sterilization required, pen like, hand-held, portable tonometer.


Emil W. Chynn, MD, FASC from Park Avenue LASEK stated, – “As a Cornea-Refractive trained specialist, I encounter many situations where Goldmann readings are inherently inaccurate–like post-LASIK, in cases of corneal edema, scarring, keratoconus, post-keratoprosthesis or transplant. In such cases, it’s both invaluable and reassuring to have the Diaton device available to measure IOP that’s independent of corneal pathology”

“It works,” said Dr. Mark Latina, glaucoma specialist (Harvard / MEEI) and the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), after revealing results of the study titled: “Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes”.  “The Diaton device provides a very useful way to confirm Goldmann tonometry, especially in certain complicated patients, in my glaucoma referral practice.”

Henry D. Perry, MD (Corneal Specialist and Comprehensive Ophthalmology – OCLI), – “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.”

“The [device] is easy to use, user­ friendly, and it can be used on patients for mass screening,” Dr. Shazly said. “It’s portable, it’s economical; it’s really good for screening purposes.”

John Hope, MD, an ophthalmologist in private practice in Oklahoma City, said that he prefers the device because applanation tonometry is time-consuming and often requires support staff. Dr. Hope said that he has used the instrument routinely on every patient for at least 6 months.

“This instrument is so user­ friendly . . . there are no rubber covers to deal with, and, after the initial purchase, it is virtually maintenance-free,” he said.“I clean the instrument with an alcohol pad after each use, and it is easily portable in your pocket and can be transported from room to room or office to office.”

“There is no corneal contact and pressures can be obtained in patients wearing contact lenses,” Dr. Hope concluded. “The technique is easily and quickly learned.”
