I have glaucoma. It is indeed a sneak thief of sight. I was blessed that my eye doctor caught it fairly early. Unfortunately, I waited six months too long for my annual eye check. My bad.
I take eye drops, and have regular checkups for pressure, and my vision is fine. But not everyone has an annual eye check. If they feel they’re okay, and their eyes aren’t bothering them, they may put off having an eye check.
Since IntraOcular(IOP) or Eye Pressure is one of the major risk factors of Glaucoma, early detection is the key to preventing blindness. BiCOM Inc with its unique, Non-Corneal and Over-the-Eyelid Tonometer DIATON is challenging the “Sneak Thief of Sight” through awareness and screening events on World Glaucoma Day. The Handheld Diaton Tonometer is ideal for mass screening because it is quick, painless and non-invasive glaucoma IOP eye test.
