Date:5/26/2009

Unique Transpalpebral and Transcleral Diaton Tonometer is presented at The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology ARVO by BiCOM Inc. New Clinical Study presented "Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes". "It works," says Dr. Mark Latina, the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT).

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 26, 2009 -- Transpalpebral and Transcleral Diaton Tonometry is a unique approach to measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) THROUGH THE EYELID - without contact with the cornea, no anesthetic drops or sterilization is required. BiCOM's pen-like, hand-held, portable medical device is ideal for measuring eye pressure (IOP) and helps ophthalmologists, optometrists and primary care physicals in diagnosis and prevention of blindness caused by glaucoma, the number one cause of preventable blindness in the United States. This new ophthalmic device http://www.TonometerDiaton.com is irreplaceable for mass glaucoma screenings in children and adults.

Yet another successful clinical comparison to the Gold standard study presented at ARVO 2009, "Accuracy of Transpalpebral Tonometer Diaton Compared to Goldmann Applanation Tonometer in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes" by Authors: M.A. Latina 1, T.A. Shazly 2, R. Iospa 3, E.W. Chynn 4. From 1 Reading Health Center, Reading, MA; 2 Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary MEEI, Boston, MA; 3 Bicom, Inc., New York, NY; 4 Park Avenue Laser Vision, New York, NY.

In an interview with Ocular Surgery News at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting, Dr. Latina said IOP measurements with the Diaton tonometer are equivalent to Goldmann applanation tonometry. The Diaton device offers a safe, noncontact method of measuring pressure via the eyelid, he said.

"It works," said Dr. Mark Latina the inventor of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT).

"It gives you a reasonable estimation of the pressure without having to anesthetize the cornea through a transpalpebral approach."

Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other tonometry devices is problematic or impossible: Keratitis, Conjunctivitis, Keratotone, Cornea Dimness, Keratoprosthesis, Keratoplastics, LASIK, LASEK, PRK, Astigmatism, Ametropy, etc.,
