Requiring no drops, neither specialized skills for its use the quick and painless Icare® tonometer has an important role in eye pressure (IOP) examinations such as glaucoma screening programs of masses.

The Icare® tonometer is based on a new measuring principle, in which a very light probe is used to make momentary contact with the cornea. The measurement is barely noticed by the patient.This is good because the device not only makes IOP measuring a more pleasant experience on all patients, it is also an important break-through for succeeding with non-compliant patients (f.e. children and dementia patients).

The easy usage and dynamic patient flow obtained by the Icare® tonometer make it a very important instrument for general practitioners, optometrists, occupational health care and other medical personnel as well as its accuracy makes it suitable for specialists as ophthalmologists.
