Visioncare is equipped with a new device for ocular precision tonometry that provides an accurate direct measurement of true IOP (Intraocular Pressure) which is independent of inter – individual variations in 1 property. The Pascal dynamic tonometer is a third generation digital contact tonometer for ophthalmological applications.
Unlike applanation tonometer, which are influenced the corneal thickness and other characteristics of the cornea may produce misleading estimates of IOP. Pascal tonometer provides an accurate and direct measurement of true IOP. Pascal detects and accurately measures the dynamic pulsating fluctuations in IOP and thus permits a more detailed assessment of the pressure range to which the eye is subjected due to pulsatic ocular blood flow. No fluorescing staining is required.
