Millions are at RISK for developing Glaucoma. Glaucoma is usually symptomless and vision loss is irreversible. Often people experience loss of peripheral (side) vision first and compensate for this loss by turning their head. Diaton through Eyelid tonometer allows quick and painless exam to prevent blindness.

DIATON Tonometer provides reliable measurements and makes it possible to diagnose glaucoma in its early stages, allowing to devise an appropriate care and treatment plan. DIATON is effective in obtaining IOP measurements for many challenging patient populations, including: those with chronic conjunctivitis, erosions, edema and corneal dimness; people who have undergone corneal surgeries; and immobilized patients and children. Also, patients do not need to remove their contact lenses.
Because Glaucoma is leading cause of Blindness in the United States, and loss of vision is usually peripheral at first, many do not realize they have the “sneak thief of sight” before the damage has been done, therefore it is important to see your eyecare professional on regular bases and have your intraocular (eye) pressure IOP checked.
