60 million Americans are at RISK for developing Glaucoma. Glaucoma is usually symptomless and vision loss is irreversible. Often people experience loss of peripheral (side) vision first and compensate for this loss by turning their head.
Prevent Blindness America Survey estimates that over 4 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it. It is important to get the eye pressure (IOP) checked at least once a year. Glaucoma is 6 to 8 times more common in African-Americans than Caucasians. With early detection, medications and surgeries can be used to prevent further vision loss.
“With the introduction of our unique Tonometer Diaton – Glaucoma Eye Test through the Eyelid to the Family, General and Internal practices, 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 the U.S. and abroad,” said Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.
Handheld Diaton Tonometer is ideal for mass screening because it is quick, painless and non-invasive procedure. The measurement is taken Over-the-Eyelid with no corneal contact, requiring no anesthesia and having no risk of infecting the eye.
Diaton Tonometer is intended for use by Inpatient & Outpatient Clinics such as Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, Nursing & Elderly Homes, General & Specialty Practitioners as well as Ophthalmologists and Optometrists.
By 2020, 43 million Americans will suffer significant vision loss or even blindness, the Academy of Ophthalmology predicts. Aside from protecting the eyes from accidents, early detection and treatment of vision-threatening problems is the Key to protecting one’s sight and quality of life for later years.
