BiCOM Obtains FDA Approval for Tonometer Diaton, Unique Tonometry through Eyelid


BiCOM Inc. reveals an advanced transpalpebral Diaton tonometer. Diaton Tonometry is a unique approach to measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) THROUGH THE EYELID - non-contact (no contact with the cornea), no anesthesia or sterilization is required. BiCOM’s pen-like, hand-held, portable device is perfect for measuring eye pressure and helps ophthalmologists and optometrists in diagnosis and prevention of blindness caused by glaucoma. This ophthalmic device is irreplaceable for mass glaucoma screenings.

This new transpalpebral methodology has received the Gold Medal at the International Exhibition of Innovation Research and New Technology - “Brussels Eureca” & the Gold Medal at the International Exhibition of Research and new Technology in Geneva. Portability, safety and simplicity make Tonometer Diaton ideal for a wide range of applications: for mass screening of the population, at the patient’s bedside, in geriatrics homes, in children hospitals, for the military and for home use.

Says Mr. Boris Kun, President of BiCOM Inc: “Diaton tonometer is a revolutionary device and signifies a new stage in Optometry and Ophthalmology!”

Tonometer Diaton is the perfect solution in the following cases when the use of other devices is problematic or impossible:

*mass prophylactic screening of patients;
*IOP control during clinical observation of glaucoma patients;
*ortoclinostatical probe, as an additional test to diagnose glaucoma and during select the adequate hypotensive therapy;
ophthalmotone monitoring (even at night time);
*IOP measuring during contact correction (lenses are not taken out),
*IOP measuring in immobilized patients;
*IOP measuring in children.
*on patients with the following conditions: chronic conjunctivitis, cornea pathology, including keratitis, keratotone, cornea dimness, after penetrating keratoplastics, keratoprosthesis, laser refractive correction of the eyesight, high degree of ametropy, astigmatism;
*on patients with medicinal allergies;
*Lasik/ PRK (recent clinical trials have proved that Diaton is the only device that can be used for IOP measurement right after these surgeries)

Diaton tonometer is a perfect device for mass screenings for glaucoma for any age group. Undiagnosed and untreated, glaucoma can cause blindness. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in all age groups - from babies to senior citizens. Everyone needs to get diagnosed to preserve eyesight.

Besides determining the potential for glaucoma onset, Tonometer Diaton can also be used for monitoring treatment effectiveness throughout the day. Unlike other tonometers, Diaton can be used repeatedly during the day with no effect on the eye.

Tonometer Diaton was developed and manufactured by Ryazan State Instrument-Making Enterprise of the Russian Federation. Diaton is manufactured in compliance with the ISO 9001 and ISO 13488 certificates. Tonometer Diaton also has the CE mark certificate which ensures conformity with all applicable European directives and requirements.

During the development period, the trials were being carried out under the direction of the Head of Ophthalmology Department of the Russian State Medical University, a member of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and a Senior member of the Glaucoma Society of the International Congress of Ophthalmology - professor Arcady. P. Nesterov.

Obtained by BiCOM Inc., U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance now allows to market and sell Diaton tonometer in the territory of the US.
