We now have new technology to replace the annoying puff of air test!
Measuring the pressure of the eye is a crucial part of any eye examination to assist the optometrist in diagnosing many eye conditions including Glaucoma.
The icare® tonometer is used for a quick, easy and painless eye pressure measurement without using eye drops or air. The icare® tonometer is based on a proven accurate measuring principle, in which a very light probe is used to make momentary and gentle contact with the cornea. The measurement is barely noticed by the patient and is much more comfortable than the former way of measuring the pressure with a puff of air.
