March 21, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Diaton tonometer will be presented at the International Vision Expo and Conference on March 22-25th. Diaton will be showcased by BiCOM Inc. and Optimetrics Inc. - an ophthalmic equipments and instruments distributor for ophthalmologists, optometrists and optical laboratories in the United States and Latin America. The demo and training will be provided at Booth MS1252. BiCOM CEO comments on the growth of the eye care industry.

The International Vision Expo will be showcasing 600 exhibits carrying the latest in ophthalmic and optometric products and services. Thousands of visitors from around the world are to attend the event.

“Judging by the increase in public and private capital invested in the development of new products and services in the areas of eye care, eye disease, eye implants, pharmaceuticals, ophthalmic equipment and the like, the industry has grown dramatically throughout last few years.”, says Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.

Mr. Iospa has pointed out, “With the introduction of our unique tonometer Diaton, we’re proud to challenge Glaucoma, a “silent thief of sight”, that carries an ever increasing threat of causing blindness as the aging population is growing in US and abroad.”

“Now Diaton allows to do more through mass glaucoma screenings without the use of anesthesia drops and, more importantly, with no contact with cornea, since Diaton tonometer measures intraocular pressure through the upper eyelid, which in its turn does not require correction for corneal thickness and dramatically decreases a possibility of infection. ”

Vision Expo is a perfect opportunity for ophthalmologists and optometrists to obtain free training and to learn of the clinically proven benefits of Daiton (transpalpebral) tonometry.

“Diaton tonometry” is a unique approach to measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) through the Eyelid. Non-Contact (no contact with cornea), no anesthesia or sterilization required with this pen-like, hand-held, portable tonometer.
