The Icare TONOVET tonometer is intended for use by general veterinary practitioners, veterinary ophthalmologists and other veterinary medical personnel. Icare TONOVET is the tool to accurately measure intraocular pressure on animal patients, as it is painless and therefore creates no anxiety. The tonometer is based on a rebound measuring principle, in which a very light probe is used to make momentary, gently contact with the cornea. The device is easy to use and the measurement is barely noticed by the animal and often does not even cause corneal reflex.
Why to measure eye pressure?
Most eye problems manifest themselves in the same way – a red eye. The pressure should always be measured from the red eyes. Too high or too low pressure can be an only symptom of more serious eye disease. Animal eye pressure measuring is quick and easy with the handheld, small TONOVET tonometer. Painless measurement is barely noticed by the animal and does not require anesthesia nor the calibration of the device.
Eye pressure should be measured from:
- Young patients to establish baseline readings
- Patients older than 6-7 years
- Patients predisposed to glaucoma (42 canine breeds)
- Ocular examination patients
- Head or eye trauma patients
“Tonometry made easy! Very user friendly + reliable. The entire team can use this product with repeatable results. Very quick + easy measurements increasing medical care without much investment of time or expense.”
Dr. Jenna Richards, Richmond Hill, ON, CA
“This is the best way to do animal tonometry. It is ALWAYS well accepted by all the patients we see in our small animal hospital. It is accurate and user-friendly. It is also durable + practial to transport between clinics. I really like this practice tool.”
Dr. Barbara O’Neill, Gananoque, ON, CA
“I was trained with the Tonopen and was comfortable with it. However, I had a ‘test’ TONOVET trial at Braden River Animal Hospital brought for me and liked it. The results are reliable and accurate even for the technicians use. My results always comply with the ophthalmologists and the test is well tolerated.”
Dr. Shannon Ives, Tarpon Springs, FL, USA
“We LOVE it – refuse to use anything else – as does our ER department after using ours!”
Becca Rose, Technician, Leesburg, VA, USA
“We, as technicians, love them! Cats & dogs do so much better, much more comfortable, even after surgery!”
Jennifer Jones, Technician, Medford, USA
“Measuring IOP before the TONOVET was difficult, and reliability was questionable. We now use TONOVET on a regular basis and find it easy and reliable. It made a major difference in our ophthalmic examinations techniques and was a great help to us and our patients. We love it!”
Dr. M. Mesher, Sydney, N.S. CA
“Have used the TONOVET many times and it is very user friendly and find that the animals are less agitated with the use as well. Very fast to use and easy to learn how to use. I recommed this product to everyone!”
