We purchased our TONOVET several years ago primarily for equine work. I’ts easy, accurate, fast and not probe to artifact. We then started to use it on cats. They are a species that don’t tolerate exam room insults. The greatest insult to a cat is topical anesthesia. It stings when it goes in and the exam is over! Cats tolerate pressure checks with the TONOVET. Birds, reptiles, tortoises and other exotics are the same. Our technicians perform most of the tonometery and much prefer the TONOVET rebound tonometry on all species because of the reliability and lack of artifact. We will be moving to rebound tonometry as a sole means of pressure assessments. I am a convert.
The TONOVET is unreservedly the best tonometer I have used. It is so easy to use and the animals hardly even notice the tonometry. No topical anaesthetic is required, head positioning is not critical and restraint required is minimal. It can be used on patients post surgery when the eye is very tender, and even in the waiting room. Results are consistent and reliable. It is easy to use the TONOVET on almost every patient, even aggressive ones, and because it is so easy to use we use it on nearly all our patients, with the result that we are now diagnosing glaucomas in patients with normal looking eyes that we would not have bothered to performed tonometry on in the past. I can highly recommend the TONOVET.
