Team Diaton is Proud to Join Optometrists and other Volunteers at the Special Olympics Lions Club Opening Eyes Program – Vision & Glaucoma Screening Event (Healthy Eyes Program) at Jacob Javits Center, New York City.
Glaucoma Screening with Diaton tonometer is non-invasive and painless as it does not touch the eyeball – the reading is done via upper eyelid without need for drops or contact with cornea. Since there is no contact, there is no risk of infection. Less contact – Less hesitation the patient has the more accurate the IOP results.
