In a 2005 national survey conducted by NEI and the Lions Clubs International Foundation, 70 percent of adults reported that the loss of eyesight would have a great impact on their daily lives — a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. However, 26 percent reported they had not had an eye exam within the previous two years, and 9 percent reported never having had their eyes examined.
Unfortunately, an estimated 14 million Americans are visually impaired. In fact, the prevalence of myopia, or nearsightedness, was shown to have increased 66 percent in the past 30 years, according to a 2009 NEI study. About 11 million Americans have refractive errors — common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia — that can be detected during an eye examination and simply remedied with glasses or contact lenses.
BiCOM Inc., is a long time supporter of various screening and awareness activities. "Since the launch on Non-corneal, over the eyelid tonometer Diaton - BiCOM Team had screened 1000's and have helped to save sight in many", said Roman Iospa, CEO of BiCOM Inc.,
Handheld Diaton Tonometer is ideal for mass screening because it is quick, painless and non-invasive procedure. The measurement is taken Over-the-Eyelid with no corneal contact, requiring no anesthesia and having no risk of infecting the eye.
