Have you had your eye pressure checked lately?
Glaucoma is a general name for a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve of the eye. Glaucoma prevents the eye from sending accurate visual information to the brain. Usually associated with gradual (and sometimes sudden) increases in pressure within the eyeball itself, glaucoma can result in partial or total blindness over time. The damage caused by glaucoma is irreversible, and it is currently the second-leading cause of blindness in Americans over age 40 in the United States.Currently, glaucoma affects nearly 2.5 million Americans. And while any-one can develop glaucoma, the disease is most common in people over age 40 and those with a family history of glaucoma.The good news is that glaucoma can be treated and the threat of vision loss reduced. Early detection and careful monitoring over time are the keys to successful glaucoma treatment.
The Icare® ic100 is based on a rebound measuring principle that requires no drops, air or specialized skills for its use. This device uses patented rebound technology to measure intraocular pressure. Its light-weight probe makes momentary contact with the cornea. Icare’s proprietary algorithm coupled with state-of-the-art software allows the device to evaluate deceleration, contact time and other motion parameters of the probe when it touches the cornea. The new premium design and user interface brings IOP measuring to a higher level.
