The Icare story originally began with the development of the rebound tonometer. It was a major breakthrough obtained after a decade of hard work by Finnish MD, Mr. Antti Kontiola, who wanted to find a new, easy and patient-friendly method of measuring intraocular pressure.

The realization of the rebound method and its equipment has involved a number of partners, including the Helsinki University Eye Clinic in the clinical testing, and the Mount Sinai Medical School in the US in developing the veterinary modification of the instrument.

Today the Icare® tonometer has obtained world wide official clearances (CE, US FDA, CFDA etc.) and tens of thousands of satisfied users in over 75 countries. Clinical studies show that the data obtained by Icare® is fully comparable to measuring results with the Goldman Applanation Tonometer (GAT).

Icare Finland's former name is Tiolat Oy. On August  2008 the company name was changed to Icare Finland Oy.

Icare Finland is a part of Revenio Group Corporation, a public company listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange.

A SAFE EYE PRESSURE CHECK

STAY PROTECTED - CHOOSE AN ICARE TONOMETER

Icare’s patented rebound technology is a proven technique for obtaining accurate and rapid IOP measurements from all your patients. With an Icare tonometer a single-use probe is used to measure the eye pressure.

USING AN ICARE TONOMETER IS A SAFE CHOICE FOR YOU AND YOUR PATIENTS

Measuring with an Icare tonometer is free from air puff, anesthesia, drops or other preparation. The Icare tonometers enable hygienic and effortless eye pressure measurement that is barely noticed by the patient, making it suitable for all patients from the very young, to the older generation, even for post-surgical applications.

The Icare tonometers are safe because of the use of a single-use probe.

The Icare tonometers do not create microaerosol formations while a risk of crosscontamination may be present during microaerosol generating procedures like air puff tonometry [1-2].
