FDA clearance for Icare HOME

We are proud to announce that the Icare® HOME tonometer has been cleared by FDA, the Unites States Food and Drug Administration, and the product can now be legally marketed and sold in the United States.

Icare HOME is an easy to use tonometer designed for home use for glaucoma patients or suspects, who need regular intra ocular pressure (IOP) monitoring.

Icare HOME is the only truly quick and painless method available to record the level and fluctuations of IOP taken outside office visits. These measurements may help the health care professionals determine whether a patient has glaucoma, or have a better understanding of the patient´s glaucoma, if the patient already has a glaucoma diagnosis.

In addition to the United States, the Icare HOME has been granted sales permits in all European countries, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

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].
