Rebound tonometry is a great alternative to the Goldmann applanation tonometer in both screening and follow-up of glaucoma patients. It is a very reliable technology with a wide range of clinical applications and its use has become widespread in our practices.
The original developer of rebound tonometry
The iCare rebound tonometer revolutionized the world of tonometry in 2003. After decades of hard work, Finnish MD, Dr. Antti Kontiola succeeded to find a new, easy, and patient-friendly method of measuring intraocular pressure (IOP).
iCare tonometers are fast and reliable tools designed to help in the process of detecting and monitoring glaucoma. They are easy to use, and measurements do not require anesthetic drops or calibration.
iCare tonometers are available in over 100 countries and more than 100 000 devices have been sold globally
Unique rebound technology has made the iCare tonometer one of the most popular choices among eyecare professionals and patients worldwide. During the past 20 years, iCare has launched several rebound tonometers for different uses, from the most versatile clinical tonometer with positional freedom to the first self-tonometer for diurnal IOP monitoring by patients themselves.
Today, iCare tonometers are available in over 100 countries and more than 100 000 devices have been sold globally. The reliability and reproducibility of the measurements has been proven in over 200 clinical studies and iCare tonometers have become the market leaders in handheld tonometry.
