Get access to the latest tonometers for better treatment of eyes


TonometersA tonometer is defined as an instrument used for healthy a check-up of eyes. Its work is to calculate the pressure exerted by the fluid inside a person’s eye. This pressure is measured in the terms of millimeters of mercury, in terms of mmHg. These checkups help in detecting the healthiness of the eye as well as the optic nerves. Tonometers are available in a wide range. Some of these instruments directly touch the eyeball whereas some of them only touch the outer portion of the eyelid.

Necessity of tonometer

Types of this equipment also include those that doesn’t touch the eye at all. The reason behind the invention of tonometer is that the pressure inside the eye should vary from 10mmHg to 21mmHg. Having too low pressure can cause the inflamed iris and glaucoma. These problems can often lead to decrease in vision. Such problems are examined by optometrists with the help of a tonometer. In most of the tonometry methods, doctor’s aim at the flatten part of the cornea so that they can easily measure the eye pressure. In electronic indentation tonometry, a rounded tip of a tool that looks like a pen is directly placed over the cornea to note down the pressure.

Tonometer and its associated accessories

Any tonometer requires special service for maintenance purposes. Tip cleaners are the ones used for sterilizing tonometer and its parts. Tonometer repair kits are also available with low cost and high maintenance guarantee. Small tonometers are marked as the most basic and economical instrument for tip cleaning. This device intakes small amount of cleaner and provides high accuracy of output. Portable facilities of this device make it more demanding. You can also buy a tip cleaner kit rather than keeping on purchasing a new one. This kit quickly disinfects tonometer tips. Many of the popular tonometers and tip cleaners are available on the internet. You can browse through these websites for any additional options.

Vision therapy

Vision therapy is a kind of training, which helps in improving a person’s vision. This improvement involves skills such as eye movement control, coordination of eyes, the teamwork of eyes and a lot more. All these skills are carried under the keen observation of doctors. Vision therapy is prescribed only after the conduction of a set of comprehensive eye examination. Based on the results, patients are allowed to take eye exercises. These exercises include use of lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, specialized instruments and computer programs.

Vision therapy tools

These tools include various types of cards, which are designed to use with accommodative as well as ocular therapies. All these cards come packed inside a well-coated re-usable plastic. You can use these cards with erasable markers. Optical strain can also be reduced with the help of prism sets. Go for plastic prisms because these prisms reduce birefringent effects. A lot of people take unregulated treatments for the eyes. These treatments include computer games. These games come with special eyeglasses that assist vision care. Many such tools are available online. You can shop freely with a variety of choices.
