COVID-19

We would like to sincerely extend our thoughts and best wishes to all impacted by COVID-19. The safety and health of our employees, external partners and customers is of vital importance to us. To assist in minimizing the spread of the Coronavirus we are implementing a remote work policy for our office-based employees who can work remotely. This allows our daily operations to continue, with minimal disruption, while notably reducing the risk of viral exposure.

In everything we do we will follow local government recommendations and laws to minimize all potential damage from the virus. We will continue to support our customers from remote.

Even though we don’t expect this change to disrupt our services or deliveries, we want you to be aware of our response to this global health crisis and ask for your patience and understanding in this challenging situation. We will do our best to continue serving you, our customer, the best possible way currently and in the future. Stay safe and be well!

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].
