How to Measure intraocular pressure to diagnose glaucoma with a Diaton Tonometer
Attention all optometrists and ophthalmologists— there's a new tool in town, and it's called the Diaton Tonometer. Diaton's tonometer is an easy-to-use and accurate instrument for measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) through the eyelid, which makes it simple to diagnose patients with glaucoma during the early stages, so that immediate treatment and medicines can be administered. This transpalpebral tonometer is handheld, pen-like and no-contact, which provides absolutely no risk of infection. Plus, there's no anaesthetic drops!
This 11-part training video is for all of you starting out with the Diaton Tonometer. It starts out with a description of what it is, what it can do, and how it works. Then, learn how to take accurate measurements, properly clean and sterilize the device, prepare a patient, use the proper positioning, take the reading through the eyelid, calibrate it, use the digital display, disinfect it and replace the batteries. Also, you'll learn some common mistakes / errors that happen in tonometry.
