Unique non-corneal Tonometer Diaton, which allows to measure intraocular pressure (IOP) through the eyelid and sclera, unlike others that obtain IOP through cornea was featured at The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons ESCRS meeting in Paris, France.

Diaton tonometry is a unique approach of measuring intraocular pressure without touching the surface of the eye, takes tonometry reading over the upper eyelid and over the sclera. This revolutionary tonometry method allows physicians to obtain intraocular pressure without influence of central corneal thickness (CCT) and other known and unknown biometric properties and parameters of the cornea.
Unlike Goldmann tonometry which is based on the ImbertĖFick law and is effected by CCT and other corneal parameters and corneal diseases, where small area of the membrane is flattened to measure pressure of the internal fluid. Evidence shows that variations in CCT may greatly influence Goldmann tonometry reading. Parameters such as membrane elasticity, rigidity and other biomechanical properties can influence the accuracy of the intraocular pressure readings.
Diaton tonometry solves most of the corneal issues by implementing Newton 's Second Law and a Ballistic principle to obtain IOP. Readings with Diaton Tonometer are taken over the upper eyelid, at the tarsus and over the sclera, not the cornea.
Recent clinical study ďComparison of Accuracy of Diaton Transpalpebral Tonometer Versus Goldmann Applanation Tonometer, Dynamic Contour Tonometer and Ocular Response Analyzer ď concluded: ďTranspalpebral Tonometry is an accurate method of IOP measurement that is also independent from the biomechanical characteristics of cornea. It can be recommended for IOP measurements of patients diagnosed with glaucoma including those cases where cornea pathology or cornea characteristics have been alteredĒ.
