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

Measure eye pressure safely without air puff, anesthetic drops or other preparation. The Icare® tonometers are safe because of the use of a single-use probe.

Icare® tonometers work on a patented rebound principle, in which a light-weight probe moves in a magnetic field and makes momentary contact with the cornea. The measurement requires no air or anesthetic drops.

The probe is a gold-plated metallic wire – which enables probe’s accurate movement in the magnetic field - and a small plastic tip made of medical grade plastic that gently touches the cornea. The probe’s weight and straightness tolerances are very tight to ensure repeatable IOP measurements.

Icare probes are individually packaged for safe and contamination free measurement of each patient. The probes are designed for single-use only and they should not be cleaned or re-used. Cleaning or mishandling the probe can damage it and affect the accuracy of the measurement results. Re-using probes could cause cross contamination of bacteria and it may shorten the life cycle of the device.

To ensure patient safety and the accuracy of IOP measurements, we recommend to use the original Icare® probes only.

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].
