PRLog - Dec. 7, 2010 - COLUMBIA, Md. -- According to a national survey, the national average which veterinarians charge for glaucoma screening using a tonometer is approximately $30.

Tonometry is the procedure performed to determine the fluid pressure inside the eye to test for glaucoma.  There are important reasons to accurately measure the eye pressure of veterinary patients. Glaucoma is one of the main causes of blindness in animals. The failure to diagnose glaucoma can be disastrous for the animal.

The survey results, released by Automated Ophthalmics, indicate that not only is tonometry an integral component of good preventive veterinary care, it can also be a profitable service for veterinarians to offer.  The investment required to purchase a tonometer to perform glaucoma testing ranges from $2,800 to $3,200.

"Based on the $30 average charge for tonometry, performing only ten tests a week will repay the investment in approximately two months", said Brian Congleton, National Sales Manager for Automated Ophthalmics.  "Tonometry can become a major profit center for a veterinary practice."
