Portable electronic tonometers such as the Tono-Pen XL and the new AccuPen produce accurate Intraocular Pressure (IOP) readings correlating closely with Goldmann Tonometry. These portable tonometers offer some major advantages over Goldmann Tonometry using the stationary slit lamp.
The lightweight ergonomic design and advanced electronic measurement technology of the portable tonometers enable operators to take fast and accurate IOP measurement with minimal training. Results are displayed clearly on easy-to-read LCD screens. Measurements are less influenced by operator bias than Goldmann tonometry.
The Tono-Pen XL has been used by ophthalmologists and veterinarians for twenty-five years. The new AccuPen® offers advanced technology using high resolution, real-time waveform analysis to provide accurate IOP measurements. New gravity offset technology requires less calibration than other handheld tonometers.
