Icare Tonometers:
A Better Experience for You
and Your Patients

Icare tonometers offer quick, easy, and painless eye pressure measurements without the need for drops or air-puffs!

Icare tonometers offer quick, easy, and painless eye pressure measurements without the need for drops or air-puffs!

These great tools are based on unique, patented rebound technology, using a very light probe to make a momentary contact with the patient’s cornea.  This light touch doesn’t cause any corneal defect (so you can refract afterward or even acquire keratometry measurements for surgery), and is gentle enough to use even on patients with cornea transplants!  In short, it is a very pleasant experience for both your patients and your staff.

The operation of an Icare tonometer requires no specialized skills.  It’s easy to use, patients barely notice the quick measurement, and most importantly, it makes anesthesia and inconvenient air puffs a thing of the past in your practice.

Introducing the ic200

Since it was released 10 years ago, the Icare tonometer has been one of the most reliable and user-friendly devices on the market. With the release of the ic200, Icare has taken the features doctors love about the previous models and added even more versatility and ease of use.

The 200 was designed to be used in situations where it’s difficult to get the patient’s head upright — emergency departments, nursing homes, and operating rooms. It can be used on patients in almost any position. The ic200 is also equipped with a bigger screen that’s easier to read during use, creating a better experience for the operator.

As a result, as more emergency departments and surgery centers are updating their technology, they’re increasingly switching over to the ic200 because it makes getting IOP measurements much easier with a wider variety of patients. Read on for some of the main benefits Icare tonometers offer to your practice:

Better for Patient ComfortiCare Better for Patients

Traditional tonometry devices have become sources of dread for patients who understand that an eye exam may include the uncomfortable “air puff test”. Icare tonometers allow you to eliminate the need for air puffs to measure IOP.

No Need for Anesthesia

By virtue of Icare’s patented rebound technology, these tonometers are gentle enough to be used without anesthetic eye drops, separating Icare devices from other handheld tonometers. Anesthetic drops are expensive, and having to instill them in order to perform a simple, quick measurement is unnecessarily time-consuming.

Easy to Get Accurate, Repeatable Results

Not only can you easily train anyone on your staff to perform these tests, but more importantly, you can be sure that the results you’ll get will be reliable and repeatable. Icare devices use superior internal diagnostics to increase accuracy and repeatability, no matter the operator.

No Need for Latex Covers

Some competing devices require disposable latex covers on the probe every time it’s used on a patient. Icare tonometers use disposable probes that are easy to remove and replace between uses, saving time and reducing the risk of complications with patients who suffer from latex allergies.
